January 20

Her Fit (left) and my Phase (right)
Today was almost like Christmas with a package at the door. In it contained a new pair of Skora Phase for me and a pair of Fit for Christine. It worked out perfectly since my other pair of Phase are at 500 miles give or take and Skora was running a 30% off special last week. If you are interest in a light, minimalist, zero-drop shoe, click the add on the right sidebar. I really can't say enough great things about the shoes or the company. I'm a Skora runner for life.

After a great rest day and 4 nights of 8 hour sleep I was ready to get back out and run. the initial plan was to only do 3 miles to shake out the DOMS and break in the new kicks. That plan began to evolve almost immediately as it was yet another gorgeous night to run and I was feeling great. As I got to the turnaround I thought, why not 4, I'm feeling good. The same thing happened as I hit the 4 mile turnaround and figured it wouldn't hurt to do 5; so onward I continued. Now normally, Tuesdays are a 1 hour night (6-7 miles) so by the time I got to where I needed to turn it was pretty much "screw it, we're this far, it's a nice night and I feel good, we're doing 6".

So it was 6 miles in the books which meant a late dinner and now I'm up later than I should be if I want to get in 3 or 4 in the morning before work.
