New Shoes to review

Yesterday it rained all day and continued into the evening for our club run.  I don’t mind running in the rain as once you are wet then it doesn’t make too much difference.

Thankfully others agree with me and we had 7 on our group.  Robert A took on another mystery tour of Paisley. This time past Asda in Linwood, through Ferguslie, then through town and back to Elderslie Baths.

I was keen to do an easier run so made sure I stayed at the back of the group so that I wasn’t pushing the pace.  I spent the run chatting to John McL and others and really enjoyed it.  The pavements were very wet in places and we ran through a number of big puddles.

With just under 2 miles to go David Mac pushed on and as I was feeling good decided to chase him and once I caught him we ran in together.  We stayed on the right hand side of the road which meant that we had to go round the roundabout thus running a bit longer.
John McL on the other hand crossed over and ran on the other side and finished just ahead of us.  I hadn’t seem him go by so was surprised to see him finish ahead of us!!
Anyway we ran 8.88miles at 7.46pace.  I was more than happy with that.  My plan for the next 10 days until the race is
Thursday – cycle to and from work
Friday – easy 5-6miles
Saturday – rest
Sunday – easy 6miles
Monday – cycle to and from work
Tuesday – easy 5miles
Wednesday – rest (or cycle)
Thursday – easy 5miles
Friday – rest
Saturday – rest
Sunday – RACE
If this rain continues then I would imagine that the Jedburgh 3 peaks course will be very muddy.  It’s the same for everybody but will mean that the times may well be slower.  Remember my ‘Guess My Time’ Competition is open if you want to guess how long the 38mile race will take me.
Last week Katrina asked me whether I’d ever heard of On-Running shoes as a friend of hers had shown her a pair.  I found the On-Running web site to find out more about them and put something on Facebook asking whether anyone had tried them.
They are a new design and Marc Laithwaite said he wears them for all his road running and really likes them.  I decided to email the company to see whether they would be interested in sending me a pair for me to review on this blog.
They replied and said they would be happy to send me a pair and they arrived today.  I asked for the Cloudrunner model as they are recommended for longer runs.  I’m really looking forward to trying them out.  In due course I will write a review. 
First impressions are they are very different. Nice colours though!

Having been won over by Hoka’s for my off road running I’m looking forward to trying these out for my road running.  Watch this space!
