Running longer and faster… a few thoughts…

The search continues…

Easy-cozy Saturday… that was the plan…and got well-executed 🙂

Long night with bugs dreams … still woke up well rested, thank myself for having prepared my gear yesterday evening (I know, I usually do it, but sometimes I don’t and yesterday it was done at the last minute before bed) and off under drizzling rain (Yes, sounds like a dĂ©jĂ -vu or “copy/paste” from yesterday…just 2 hours later though). The first km felt just like light and flying. Real nice and the music chosen suited perfectly. Got back&forth in my thoughts about taking the bridge or not and finally run up to it and turn to get the first kms of Göteborgsvarvet. Still nice under the light rain and nice temperature. But the thing I appreciated the most was the light. OK it was a bit late in the morning, but the light of the skies was divine. Just went along and enjoyed running up the slopes on the top of the toes and it did feel fine 🙂 Happy me! Completed the run with a large smile, J Jackson in the ears and the rain beginning to fall 🙂 Rainy runs are really underestimated…

And the easy-cozy Saturday just continued, little shopping was planned. The chase for new racing shoes is on. Found a pres while googling explaining that the ASICS Gel DS-Sky Speed was actually a model developed for the Swedish market (?) and now the #3 is available only in selected store. This could just be a little inconvenience, but the #3 is not at all the same as #2. Have tried it all over again and nope. Not for me. So have been checking around and got suggested to look at Adidas Adios 2 and Adidas Adizero Adios Boost. Yaaa if you note that there is a mistake in the name of the models, that is highly probable. Apparently “Boost” is a technology used for the cushioning. SO plenty of models have this “boost” in the model name… Daaaa!  Intersport had Adidas Superglide Boost but they felt heavy and indeed they seem to be as heavy (if not more) than my GT-2150 that I had today. So sure they could be an alternative for training, but today it was racing shoes that were on the search menu. Got suggested stores to be checked (of course, none of them in the city center…).

The plan is to check the Aidas Adios 2 and Adidas Adizero Adios Boost. If I can find a shop having them in stocl in the correct size, this will be tested during the week. Otherwise, Paris should be able to help me on this one… Any tips on those models?

Dinner at a Burrito/Quesadilla restaurant, chausson aux pommes freshly taken out of the baker oven and time for an evening movie.. The only catch being the movie had no sound after 20minutes… ;(  Time to load for tomorrow’s fun-fast-pace run. Hopefully I can get some support on the way.

Paris…not much left, really…
