It feels a little bit weird that I haven’t done *any* exercise for the past two days, since I finished the 5×50 Challenge! Still, I have been ludicrously busy with work this week, and had a little niggle in my foot so it was probably just as well I took some time out.
However, I went on a bit of an online spending spree at the weekend and, among other exciting household items including replacement heads for our electric toothbrush and a mattress protector (yawn!), I also ordered some new running shoes – and they arrived today – squeeeee!!!
So obviously, I had to take them out for a test run, and as it was SUCH a gorgeous evening, I decided to do my favourite 10km loop. I took it fairly slowly and easy and really enjoyed the run. My new shoes are exactly the same as my old ones – same make, model and even the same colour. They felt a bit stiff in the sole, but I suppose they will soften up with wear. Otherwise, they feel very bouncy and just as comfy as my old ones.
Here’s to another 500+ miles of happy running!
