I bought some new running shoes this morning at Marathon Sports. They are Altras, which is a minimalist/barefoot type shoe.
I just got back from my first run of the second week. It was much more difficult than the first week, but not bad at all. It actually felt like I was running this week. Last week was mostly walking. I feel great after the run. The first interval was the most difficult. The Canal was beautiful with the full moon over the water. When I got back to my car, it started pouring rain with lots of lightning. I guess I timed it just right. I didn't even get wet!
My calves are a little sore after the run, but it's because of the new shoes. It's supposed to take a little while to get used to running in this type of shoe, but I've got to say, I really like them. My toes have so much room to spread out like they do when you really are barefoot, and they are really comfortable.
See you after my next training session! Oh yeah... I signed up for the Somerville Jingle Bell run on 16 Oct this morning... no more slacking, I have a deadline!
