Bring it on I tell myself on last nights run. That is two more days of good running. So far I can say 2008 I have not had a bad run !! OK I do know that we are only 3 days into the year but you have to start somewhere.
On Wednesday night I ran from work to Nick's house and we did a nice loop from there. The temp's where still pretty cool. In someways it felt colder than yesterday even though it was not. I think it was because it was dark out. The sun can have a big effect on things that is for sure. Nick was looking for a easy 7 miles so I figured by running from work that extra going to and back would be perfect for getting just that little bit extra. As I thought it was perfect. I got in a nice easy 9 miles. I wore a pair of New Balance 874 trail shoes I got from the NB Rep. Over all I like them but I found my right forefoot got a bit sore. I still like the version they had out like 2-3 years ago better.
On Thursday night I got out for a little Tangletown hill loop. With the 50th street bridge out I had to make a few changes but overall it was the same as I normally do. I decided the night before while running with Nick I needed and wanted to start doing some hilly runs. Not to run them all hard but just get into that climbing rhythm which will be so important all next year. I did feel real good. I love running things like this with my ipod rocking in my ears. So good tunes this night made the run a A+ in my book. I also tried a new pair of New Balance 800 trail shoes as well. They are much more striped down. I liked them as well. So far I still need to give my vote to the Puma's. If the races started today it would be trailfox's all the way. I believe my loop was like 6 miles. That makes me on track for a great week !
