Long mid-afternoon run

run 3 Jan 2011

17.3 km
2hrs 30 mins

This run felt longer than it was. Must be the time I started – 1:43 pm. I love running in the heat but at the 12 k mark today, I was wilting and salt was precipitating on my skin. I am still getting used to running long with the vibrams but today’s run was much better with moderate protests from my feet.

The good thing about running with the minimalist footwear is that my knees don’t hurt after a long run. Usually my right knee is the first one to feel it and it must be because my right leg is shorter. But with the midsole strike, the knees seem to be ok.
