Run Journal - #30

Details: 30 easy
Shoes: Saucony Kinvara 5

I tried to run on feel again today. In the end my pace was all over the place, but I can at least feel good about the fact that from a "feel" perspective a pace that would have been quite hard a month or two ago was fairly easy today. On a shoe note, I was in the Kinvara's today and they felt good. The Hoka's just didn't click with me, I guess. That's a shame as I had pretty high hopes for them given the praise they had received from so many of the bloggers I follow.

I was thinking today about what running I'll do after I'm done with this marathon training. The reality is that I'm doing this as a challenge to myself and not because I have a particular love of running. I do like that I "can" run now, but the actual act itself doesn't bring me any specific pleasure. We'll see what happens. Who knows, maybe I'll need to do it; after all, if I'm still struggling with my weight with all of the exercise and eating reasonably well, cutting back on the running doesn't seem like it would help the situation.
