Enough about work! This morning I had a good swim workout with the group I coach, nothing fast but a bunch of IM stuff. This afternoon I did a brick, with an hour bike and then a 35 min run outside off the bike. The first half of my run was great and I felt awesome. But when I turned around, I realized that the wind had been at my back and it was in my face the whole way back! Brrrr! The windchill was -19 so I froze.
I bought a new pair of shoes yesterday when I picked up my race package for the half marathon. My old shoes are super worn out and I realize now that they are probably the source of the aches and pains I have been experiencing lately. I wore the new shoes in today's run and they are awesome! They look pretty sweet, too!
I am going to break all the rules and wear my new shoes in my half marathon tomorrow. It's not like I haven't worn this kind before, I used to wear Air Pegasus before I changed to the Max Moto a few years ago. So they should be okay tomorrow (I hope!). I am going to just go out there and run the race as best I can, at the very least it will be good long run (my longest run this year actually!). The low overnight is supposed to be chilly (-24C) but I will suck it up and get out there to run! I will let you know how it goes!
