Running4theMasses has been updated for 8.31.12. This is the final update for the week, and we’ll be back right after the holiday weekend to get back at it.
Well, I kept the trend going yesterday and ran again over the lunch hour. I got in 6 miles in about 55 minutes. Man did the heat really start to get to me at the end. I felt great, not tired at all, but just started to get run down from the heat. Glad I hit that 6 mile mark right at the parking lot (good planning on my part, huh?)
Today, I broke down and bought a new pair of trail shoes that are more suited to my running style, and I have plans to possibly purchase another pair of trail shoes to keep a similar pair in my rotation as I think that I’m going to start refocusing my efforts from the road to the trail, and having the proper shoes is of key importance.
This weekend, I am taking a huge (or a huge risk) and am going to attempt my LONG run prior to the marathon and am hoping to get in a 20 mile run on Sunday morning. Here’s to wishful thinking. Bad thing is, I won’t have my new shoes to run in. Good thing is my new @Synergenics should be here to help me get through it.
Here is my run from yesterday:
Here is to everyone having a great holiday weekend. If you are running a race, best of luck. If you are just running, here is to safe ventures!!!!
