Ideas, photos, routes, and how I fare doing all sorts of workouts. Riding, swimming, biking, etc. Dave Masterson's workout blog.

Ain’t got no sole

7mi. Today was my first hill sprint day since A1A Marathon. My legs felt ready for this workout. I knew it wouldn’t be my fastest times, but I felt it was necessary to climb back and get my lungs going. I don’t have any other endurance races ahead, so I’ll concentrate on getting better at the 5k distance.

My New Balance shoes are a good choice for the shorter runs, as long as I remember to wear skinny socks. Coming down the stairs to get ready this morning, I put them on and noticed they felt good space-wise, no tightness on the width. Ok by me!

I ran the 1/2 mile warm up, did 3 miles of regular hills, 6 sprints up and recovery jogs down, and a 1/2 miles cool down.

When I took them off at home, I noticed they had no insoles! Not the stock “mousepad” flat ones they come with or the arch inserts I use. Maybe that’s why I had so much room inside them – and felt a sore outer right foot during and after the run. Jeez…
