This was my first run gearing up with my new ASICS GEL Kayano 19. I had hopes of it being a much nicer run. Not that I'd run necessarily faster, but that it would feel really good with the new kicks. Now, don't get me wrong, the run felt good as far as my feet were concerned. Unfortunately, it wasn't the best of runs, which left me feeling poor. Not physically, just mentally. I did not have the run I was hoping for.
I'm not happy with the pace. I do know I'll have these days. I also know that the point of a maintenance run isn't about the pace you keep but first and foremost about getting out there and running. That's especially important so early in my running and training. I need to just brush it off and get a better run out on Saturday. It's only a 2 mile run, so I shouldn't be bad at all. An easier run to start my weekend off right.
