When I was buying the extra shoes in Tallahassee for the return trip to Kyiv I asked the people at Capital City Runners how many miles they thought I would get out of the Saucony Kinvara 3s. They thought 250 miles was about max before you started feeling things. I really didn't want to believe that since I live on the 310 mile or 500km rule. Well guess how many miles I have on these shoes? 400km or 248 miles. is that a coincidence? I will switch shoes when I start up again.
Thursday through Monday, 5 days of running. All of it quite good. A lot of breathing meditation for each of the runs. Of course I lost mindfulness regularly, but following the breath the entire run was helpful to return back without blame to the breath and disconnect mindfulness from the body and work with the areas of a new body with every second, every step, every 2 steps, meters, kilometers, miles, runs. Interesting phenomena.
Also, the back is none of my business, it is the bodies business and all that arises, ceases.
