run | commute

Since my foot didn't hurt me yesterday while doing stairs I decided to push my luck and give running a shot today in the same comfy shoes. And it worked! Nice.

Not sure how well my Brooks Cascadia trail running shoes are supporting my feet but there was no discomfort during and immediately after so here's hoping it was okay… I have heard people say that it's okay to run in the dirt with road shoes but that you really shouldn't run on the road with trail shoes as they are usually too soft. :(

As an extra bonus I got to run with Thom W who is training for a 5 km event in a few weeks and I loves me some company when I exercise so that was great.

To top it all off the weather report looks absolutely fabulous and this is going to be the hottest week of the year! Bring it.

I got on the treadmill and immediately hit the gas which may not have been the smartest thing… I was breathing hard in a hurry. It leveled off after about 11 minutes but then towards the end I got that old familiar feeling of not getting enough oxygen in my lungs. :( I'm hoping it's just because I have not exercised hard in a long time. 7:00 pace is hard for me.
