Happy Thursday! I got a full 8 hours of sleep last night and am feeling good! After making Ben a super quick breakfast I ran out the door and did 6 miles. They were supposed to be tempo but with the uphill out / downhill back it went: w/u; 8:38; 8:55; 8:06; 8:38; c/d. I’m not a fan of hills, but it’s good that I get used to them for New York!
The kind souls at Brooks also sent me the PureConnect Shoes. Um, these just blow my mind. I haven’t worn them for a whole run yet, just around the house but I am loving the way they wrap my foot and feel so light.
