This would be my second run after my Ironman and I felt pretty good. Not only that, but I had a brand new pair of shiny running shoes that I needed to try out. I went for a long walk with Levi before I went out only to realize it felt humid. YUCK. I HATE humidity.
Regardless of the wet soil along my run from last night's downpour, I had a pretty decent run and would smile every time I'd look down to my feet to see incredibly bright shoes. I left my house in Louisville and ran East along the path. Turned around at 2 miles and came back home for a total of 4 miles. My average pace was 9:09 min/mile with my second mile being the fastest at 8:50 min/mile. The first and third were around the 9 minute mark and the last was a little slower at 9:20 min/mile.
I enjoyed my run, and most of all I enjoyed running with no pain and with my new shoes. After today, I believe these are the right choice. I am happy that I went back and asked for a different pair than the Nike Structures. Off to bed for now. Happy running.
