A pretty solid mileage week (25 and change) and very excited about spring. I’m testing new shoes for work (always fun!) and I think I found my new trainer: Adidas Adizero Boston Boost 7. I haven’t run in Adidas in ages, but man… these are something else.

3 miles, 8xHill, 8:40 average
Man, was I glad not to be running Boston. But I did get out for some rainy, windy hills. I used to live on a hill, but now I live near one. So I ran to my old street for four hill repeats and then to the new hill for another four. Solid.

Much needed slow catchup session with a few coworkers. And boy did it warm up.
Thursday, April 19
6 miles, 3x2K at HMP progression, 7:17 average
So this workout called for four repeats or three but each one 15 seconds faster. I planned to do four but I was running late. It was too late in the workout to drop by 15 seconds per repeat by the time I realized I’d have to cut it short, but I was still able to progress down. For half marathon and slightly faster, this was heavy on the legs. But I liked it.
8:59, 8:50, 8:45

10 miles, 8:25 average
Gorgeous spring morning (long sleeves, shorts, gloves!). Easy and my first run in the new Adidas. Ballsy, I know, to try them on a 10-miler for my first run. But I had faith.

1 mile, 8:43
I took the little guy to cheer on the St. Luke’s Half Marathon. And then, I was finally able to break out the jogger stroller (Thule Urban Glide). Boy, was that fun. A little tough on the arms, but fun. The kiddo loved it, and I have new summer plans: After my morning workouts, I’ll come back for the little guy, eat, and then pop him in for some easy cruising miles.
