Spring into running!

The running swing is officially back! Yeah! I had two runs this week that were short, but included the all important "this feels kinda good" period.

And today I hit 4 miles, ran really well and parts of it kind of fast! I did 7.5 mph for over 5 minutes. It was a tempo run and I just kept going up and up!

The Newtons really do feel like miracle shoes. No foot pain at all, like zero. Super happy with the purchase. My only issue is that they run super duper small. I wear a 9.5, ordered a 10.5 and I think I should have gone with a size 11. They feel fine during the run, but afterwards the tips of my longer toes are a little chafed. Next pair I get will be bigger.

Spring has sprung here, which is usually when I get my workout "shit" together. Winters burn me out and I just want to snuggle up and knit or hang with my babies. Next year I'd like to try to keep up with the running, even if it's toned down. But either way, it only took 6 runs to get back to 4 miles. Pretty sure I can get back to my usual 5 milers by next week. Which is just fine for me.
