So today I only had 30 min or so for a quick run...it is the last day before Spring Break and kids are getting out early plus I went to volunteer in the classrooms.
I went for 3 miles. Just that. I put on my PURE FLOW.
Like I said on my last post, I have a hard time adjusting to these shoes. It feels weird running in them and also slow. At mile 1.5 I tripped but I did not fall. I am sure that made the drivers who saw me laugh. It's OK. For the last mile I tried to pick the pace to be where I usually am for a short run like that...in the lower 9:xx.
I have worked hard in the last months t0 get to a faster pace and with these shoes I feel like I am regressing. It is frustrating.
Anyway back to the run...last mile I decide to go faster (not a sprint just faster)
at 2.98 miles...
4 steps from my car...
I took a nasty fall.
I did not trip on anything, no rock, no crack, no piece of wood, nothing.
I BLAME the freaking SHOES.
- 2 bloody knees.
- 1 pair of broken compression capri pants
- 1 broken glove
- 2 sore hands. Lucky I had gloves on otherwise my hands would be much worst.
- 1 damaged shoe
I am not loving those shoes right now and I am thinking this was a big mistake and a waste of money. BOOOO HOOOO.
The Madness is here!
First Day: 14 out of 15 for me.
