This is my first week with 2-a-days, which means waking up at the butt crack of dawn. Earlier, actually. Morning run started before 4:30 am- ouch! 5 miles from mile 21.5 to 24 and back on TOU course. Started at 8:10 pace, finished at 7:25 pace. Felt ok considering how many miles I have run and how tired I am. Way too early for a run and not even cool out- close to 70 degrees. 38:25 time. 2-a-days are very hard for me when I have to get up so early.
Evening run- 6 easy miles with Paul on river trail. 51:51. Might have been a hair longer than 6, cause 8:30 pace seems a bit slow. It was humid and there was a very pretty mist/fog over the river and especially over the lakes- rather dense on the lakes. I thought it was very pituresque (sp?).
I now have 6 pairs of running shoes.
Road shoes: Saucony Omni 5 (292 miles), NB 766 (315 miles)
Trail shoes: Mizuno Wave Ascend 2 (60 miles), NB 806 (332 miles)
Racing shoes: Saucony Tangent 2 (20 miles), Nike Elite (not sure- probably 100 miles)
Since I just bought the Tangents, I think my Elites will be changed to road shoes/lightweight trainers since both of my other road shoes are getting up there in years.
