Now I am gearing up for the Brooklyn Half on May 18th! I am going to give it my best effort and fingers crossed that I finish within the time limit! I am trying out the Galloway run/walk/run method for the first time. It went well for 9 miles yesterday and for my short runs the past week. Yay!
I also have some really awesome new shoes that I am breaking in. So far, I am in love with my Hoka One One Stinson shoes. No offense to my Asics Kayanos (that I adore) but these are so much softer and absorb shock like crazy. I hope they continue to give me the wonderful feeling I had yesterday! My heel didn't start to bother me until mile 6 because it is usually killing me by 3 miles! Being able to walk without limping post-run was the biggest plus of all, however, once I took them off and wore my Kayanos at the baseball game it was back to limping. I may need to buy another pair to wear while not running. I shall ponder this idea!
I am sure you are all sound asleep now from my race recap and running rambles but it feels so good to be running again. :)
