Distance: 5 miles
Location: Pasadena, CA
Notes: I won't be trying on Nike shoes for a while. The pair I tried on tonight were horrible. They felt heavy and my feet felt cramped. There was way too much support. My feet weren't moving comfortably. By the end of the night, my calves were tight and my shins were sore.
I ran with a faster group tonight, and as a result, I ran the five mile course slightly faster than last week. Not bad considering I felt horrible and never got comfortable with the shoes. I have some phlegm issues, but that didn't bother me too much. Tonight might be the last Nike Run I do in a while. Classes start next week, and I have a Monday class that will prevent me from attending the Nike runs. Maybe later in the season.
