I seem to finally be hitting my stride this week with my new orthotics. Thankfully, I was able to do all the runs I had planned as I had planned them, and I recovered well from each run. The highlight of my week was definitely the beautiful 60-minute run on Friday through the hills and ponds of Brookline. It was a balmy 40 degrees and partly sunny, so I broke out the capris and the running vest. Not quite spring-like, but getting there!
