Morning Run - New shoes

in EXHAUST2 months ago

I just finished a 7.61km running that lasted about 0hh:41mm:55ss !

The good news is that Garmin is working again. It seems they had a ransomware attack. I do not know if they paid up, but you would hope they had backups. They were out of action for several days, but I could still log a run with Strava and that is my main social running app anyway. Today I just logged the run on my watch and Strava picked it up from Garmin, although it was not as immediate as usual.

The other news is that I have new running shoes. When we were in Portsmouth we went to the Asics 'outlet' store. There were others there for Adidas, Nike and other brands, but some of those had big queues. I was in need of new shoes anyway and there were some here at a reasonable price. There is the usual problem of too much choice, but I went for the Gel-Flux 5. I looked them up online and reviews were good. They are not a premium shoe, but should do for my runs. They were a lot cheaper than some other shoes I have and you could get them online as cheap, but it is always best to try them on. I had to go up a half size from my usual to get a good fit.

The shoes were fine on today's run. I had been feeling a bit under the weather for the last couple of days, but my running was reasonable. I did not bother with intervals this time and once I was out I decided to do a whole loop up to Fairfield. This meant negotiating the flooded underpass again. The long climb was hard work.

It was fairly cool this morning. I wonder if it will warm up in August.

Run free and stay well.

The shoes look really cool anyway, and they get the job done.

You're far too healthy young man.

Not that young mate. I'm only healthy because I started running eight years ago. Given how obese people are getting it would help if more people took some exercise to relieve stress on our 'beloved NHS'. It needs more than applause to keep them going.

How about a "Push a fat friend" campaign? People could get healthy by pushing someone fat around in a wheelchair or low loader?

That's one option. Doesn't do the fat friend much good, but may shame them into action :) I think a lot of people have taken up running during lockdown out of boredom and lack of access to gyms. Hope you are staying well. I guess you have to walk the dog at least.

I'm taking him for walk #2 at 12 midday. Gotta walk off the bakewell tarts somehow.

Looks like you went a bit faster than usual this time! Nice work!
Have a !BEER for your troubles!

Congrats on both the new shoes and a good run. It shows consistency no matter how you feel.

Cheers. I do seem to be seeing improvements. As I have been stuck at home I have been doing other exercise, so should be generally fitter.

I always go for the cheaper Asics, around £40-60, I find the sizing 100% reliable so it's unusual I think to go a half size up.

Phew, Garmin is back, that's a relief.... you may have seen this, it amused me:

Consistent pacing there, good job!

I found the size 10 a bit snug. Runners tend to be pretty chilled people. They love their stats, but shit happens.

Love new running shoes!

I should not leave it too long. Need to clear out some of the old ones as my other half is complaining about them.

Get yourself a bigger shoe closet :)
