When I opened the box I got VERY excited as I’ve never had such a colourful pair of running shoes before. They have a curved sole with a gap – it’s called a kinetic return system and is designed to encourage a mid foot strike. They took a bit of getting used to so I decided to do a short tempo run, and did 2.2m in 24 mins – a speed of 10m 59s per mile woohoo! I’m not going to do a full review until I’ve done a few more miles in them, so check back here in a couple of weeks for more details.
I followed the run up with half a resistance work out – I didn’t want to do too much as I have a last long run again tomorrow morning. And then I PROMISE I will taper – after all I have to practice it now I know I’ll be running a marathon in less than 7 months.
