Today I went out to a quiet Sewanee track to bust butt again. It was breezy, sunny and about 73º. I gave it 2 days rest because the injury was a bit sore after the 3rd workout in 5 days, running 800m repeats. Today wasn't any easier. Injury felt fine, only felt it when I ran my last 400m. The injury site is finally showing some black n blue... kind of odd after 3 weeks.
600m warmup, stretches, drills
5 x 600m - 1:55, 1:56, 1:58, 1:56, 1:58
400m - 68
It was a bitch as usual. Kept reminding myself how 'lucky' I was, that I was able to be out there doing that. I'm confident that it is not hurting the injury, felt good when I was doing some after stretches. 144 lbs after workout.
I found a pair of last years Puma Bolt Evospeed LTDs in the UK my size and bought them for about $125 including shipping. In my favorite electric green too. Been looking a while for these and am convinced they are the last of their kind on earth. My training shoes have just about had it and I will be replacing those next week. The Saucony Rides have been fine, but I might try on some others. Nike Flynet Lunar, Saucony Guide 8, or Saucony Triumph iso perhaps. Do I go with maximum forefoot cushioning or a lighter more flexible shoe with slightly less cushion? I need to go into the store.
