Not bad in general, my following of the breath was continually interrupted by monitoring my back, which of course required that I return to the breath about two million times. The final two kilometers was probably the best breathing mindfulness I had. It was not a quick run. I never thought it would be. I will be surprised if this isn't the fastest I run all week.
New shoes in play. Recall I had 250 on the Kinvara's and the shoe people said that was about what I would get. Well I bought a pair of Saucony Cortana from the same people in America and I put those on. This is supposed to be their high end version of the Kinvara. On the internet web chats I should get about 300 miles out of these shoes, that is around 550 kms so I can live with that, we'll see. First day out was not particularly impressive, I ran without inserts, I think first things first, the inserts have to go in, then I can see what happens next. The shoe itself wasn't that interesting, seemed like any other shoe, but only one run. Given impermanence, tomorrows run in them will be different, it is after all a different shoe as I am a different person tomorrow.
