This week has gone pretty well, I managed to successfully complete my first of the three 10 mile tempo runs and used the correct workout settings on my 2 mile repeats, so wins all around!
This weekend I'm running a half marathon for my long run with some besties and hopefully enjoying it in some cooler weather. It was plus 90 degrees this week, which is just the reason why I moved my runs to the morning for this training cycle. I'm still a sweaty mess when I'm done, but I'm thankful that I haven't had to get in this crazy heat!
Does anyone else use Nike+ for run tracking? Well I do, and they updated the app this week making it all fancy and more soc-meds friendly, but they wiped the mileage on my two main pairs of shoes I've been using! It managed to store some old random ones but I went to add my Brooks Glycerins to my run and they were unavailable! Now I'm just tracking in my paper calendar until I start a new pair, but this is really frustrating. I've made it a goal to rotate my shoes -Glycerins for longer runs, Saucony Rides for shorter- and now I'm all lost on how old they are. Oh well. I'm wondering if I should buy another pair of Glycerins before the marathon, what do you think? They will have about 250ish on them by that time - is that too many for a race? Usually I don't care that much, but my feet have been finicky lately and I don't want giant blisters or weird pains during the race. Training life is complicated you guys! Tell me what you race shoe strategy is please.
