Well That One Sucked – RunLog 9-4-14

As you can tell by the title my long run today was not something to write home about or give it more credibility than it deserves.

I started out really well and thought that I was going to have a GREAT run, but that changed going into mile 3.0 and didn’t get better – it got worse.

A Lot Going On Yesterday and Today – RunLog 8-20-14

I didn’t bother to post yesterday, all that I did was recovery miles.

Which to me are more like pulling teeth without Novocaine, they hurt and it ain’t necessary.

Running that slow is hard, but I also know that it is necessary to do a good recovery workout after a TOUGH speed work session Monday.

By the time we got into that first mile, my legs felt like someone had taken ball peen hammers to them!

So it was the long slog yesterday, which meant that it was a good recovery run.

First Run Pearl Izumi N1 Roads – RunLog 8-16-14

Okay – Dokay, another first run in a pair of shoes, I think this is about the 12th or 13th time this year that this has happened, so it is not anything, new, strange or overly exciting – or is it?

Nope – just another first run in a new pair of running shoes ;-).

For the 4th time this year it has been a new pair of Pearl Izumi’s, only this time it was the:

  • EM/N1 Roads

Yeah I know these are “old” news running shoes. They were great last year, but now that the brands have all released new models this year – who cares. 

Supposedly with all the new releases by all the other brands so far this year, they have left Pearl Izumi way behind, because PI has chosen to have a 2 year release cycle.

Which made it seem as though one of their flagship shoes, the N1 Roads are no longer relevant.

Which is wrong.

Personally, I am in favor of a longer release cycle. It gives runners who might be completely happy with a style/model of running shoes an extra year in that shoe, instead of worrying if the “update” will screw-up their favorite shoes that they have searched so long for.

Which has happened all too often to me in the past.

Stop

Stop frigging around Harold, you are going way off on a tangent, just get to the point where you actually say how they did instead of all this fluff shit to start the blog post. Continue reading “First Run Pearl Izumi N1 Roads – RunLog 8-16-14”
