Bad Combination

PhotobucketWith the polka pace race out of the way I need to start focusing less on speed, and more on mileage.  I have been sacrificing my long run to do extra speed sessions, or a swim workout.  So this morning I headed out out for a longer run. 

I went around 0900.  The temp was perfect, and the rain hadn’t started.  I kept my pace nice and easy.  Around an 8:15 average.  It was a nice 7 mile run.

I think the bad combination of some very high heels that I wore Saturday night, and the fact that I am due for a new pair of cushion running shoes, caused my knee pain that I experienced post run. 

I paid the running center a visit and picked up a pair of Asics gel Kayano’s.  This will be the 3rd pair of Kayano’s for me.  I wore the 2120 previously, but I find the Kayano provides more stability. While I was there I picked up 2 packs of Gu roctane. One vanilla orange, and blueberry pomegranate. I can’t wait to try the new flavors.
