Cool new stuff from Saucony

So I decided to try out the Hurricanes, and I have officially made the switch from the Omnis to the Hurricanes. I didn’t like the way the Progrid Hurricane 11 looked, so I went with last year’s model. Unfortunately, the new change to the shoe where it holds your heel in place is not included in this version of the shoe. I am anxiously awaiting the release of the 12 because I’m hoping that it is more aesthetically pleasing and contains the new heel feature. As you can tell from my blog, I like Saucony.

The shirts were on sale. I promise that they are two different styles. They look similar in the picture, but in real life are quite different. One of the shirts is protected with a rating of 50 spf. The other allows significantly more breathing. Oddly enough, if it were real sunny and hot, I would prefer to wear the shirt that didn’t have the sun protection.

Both shirts are very comfortable and fit well. I like the way they look and they feel great. Couldn’t ask more from a sale. Probably need to go grab a couple more pairs of shorts, but I will need shoes quickly because I am only running on one pair at this time. It is an economic depression.

It was a long day. I didn’t get to the gym until almost 5 o’clock. Brutal.

I hadn’t eaten, but I was well hydrated. When I started to run it felt real good. I started at 7.0 for the first half mile and then 7.1 for the second half mile. After that, I bumped it up to 7.2 for one tenth of a mile. From there I ran 7.3 and 7.4 for a half a mile each. I intermittently bumped the speed up to about an 8.0 before it was done. I’m closing in on an 8 minute pace.

My heart rate was furious when I stopped, but I attribute this to it being so late in the day and having not eaten yet. I enjoyed dinner afterwards.

Just a quick run on the treadmill today, but it felt nice. I even got cocky and started to think that I would be able to do it without laboring at all, but around 2.3 miles I felt the end of my lungs. My legs felt real good, and tomorrow we go 3 miles. Almost to 5k, then we can get working on the speed and pace. I had to get back to see a professor about a project we were working on, but it was good that I made it to the gym at all.
