Training Log - Monday, May 17, 2010
I was pretty achy this morning, especially the groin and lower abdomen area. Must have been from the long run on Saturday and playing a 90 minute soccer game yesterday. Anyway, we all met up at the hiker's parking lot at Monte Sano State Park for an easy run on the trails. We opted for the South Plateau Loop-Family Bike Trail-Bucca Family Trail-South Plateau Loop option, which added up to a little over 5 miles. It sure felt like a lot more to me. My hear rate never went above 140, but my lower abdomen was just hurting a little too much. After all of that rain over the last couple of days, we really expected very muddy trails. I took this opportunity to try out my new pair of Inov-8 Roclite 312 GTX trail running shoes, hoping I would get to run through some serious mud and water. However, it wasn't to be. The trails were barely wet. But the shoes felt great. I hope to have a shoe review on a couple of shoes I recently purchased once I have been able to thoroughly put them through the paces, i.e. get some serious miles on them. I will also be reviewing my new road running shoes (Brooks Defyance 2) shortly. They withstood their first real road test (Strolling Jim 40 Mile Run) with flying colors and so did the Injinji socks. I haven't decided yet, if I will rest tomorrow. I might go for a run during lunch to do some heat/humidity training for my 108k race in Germany next month.
