I tried out the new running shoes. They were great, it was me that mucked things up. I made it about seven miles at which point friction really became my enemy, and we’ll leave it at that. Anyway I felt like I could have kept running for a while, my legs weren’t feeling too bad.
They are now. My knees hurt a bit when I get up from a chair, but not very badly. As soon as I stopped running and slowed to a walk it felt like I was walking on pillows. Just to reiterate, the shoes rock.
I want to be able to do the half marathon for the Mardi Gras Marathon, which gives me almost two months to add 6 miles. I don’t think it’ll be a big problem actually, I felt like I could almost have done it today. I didn’t say it would be a fast half marathon, but hey.
I’m consequently feeling pretty beat [sic], but I should sleep well. I’m still trying to keep the entries coming every day, whether public or private. I just need to keep getting stuff out of my head and on to the screen.
