SpeedGoat 2

New kicks ....

5.6Ks logged in these guys on the backyard trail this afternoon.   Not as much cushioning as the Stension 3 ,  lower to the ground , super grippe Vibram outsole,    more flexible through the mid-foot they remind me allot of my old Brooks Cascadias!  I think I am going to like these guys but I am not sure how they will feel going long I am use to Zero foot discomfort running 50Kers in my Stinsons. 

Speaking of Stinson 3s Road  ... they are no longer being made but Runners Den in Owen Sound found 2 more pair at a price I couldn't say no to so I walked out of the store with 3 pairs of shoes today! 

No issues with the knee on the trail today .... I am not doing the 10K road tomorrow ,  do not want to push it!   Going to log 10Ks on the backyard trail instead planning a rest day Sunday then going long on the Bruce Peninsula on Monday.

Planned on a 7K Heart Run this eve which I started but packed it in at 1.5Ks.  Left knee was hurting ,  couldn't run through it tried walking then gearing back up but no go so I called it a day and did an upper body weight routine.    Super leaning towards not doing Saturdays 10K big deal but I hate to sign up for something then not attend. 

Trail Thursday

5.6Ks done on the backyard trail this afternoon.  Temps were pushing into the mid 20s making it a super comfortable warm run ... love running in the heat,   bring it on!   Left Ankle was good as I had mentioned before just have to be super guarded of it for a while,  been there done that will do it again!

3 Days Off

Took three days off .... the left ankle was rather swollen and a bit painful after Saturdays roll.   Logged a 5Ker @ 6:00 pace this eve on my meal break  and it was OK ,  will just have to be super guarded of it for awhile!

Oops I did it again!

4.8 Ks logged on the backyard trail this afternoon.   Rolled the left ankle again ,   went down too and got a couple to "Cherrys" to prove it.      Did a K after the roll but its a bit more tender then it was at Seaton although not a show stopper by any means.   Going to have to be super careful for a bit until it settles down... been there done that will do it again!
