New Shoes - Felt great.

Swallowed a bug on the first mile and stepped on a rock and twisted my ankle on mile two but kept running.

Even though the temperature was 77 this morning it felt a little more comfortable with the Dew Point at 66 and the Humidity at 64.

I don't think there will be any more running for until Monday as I am going to a roping competition this weekend. This will be the first one in about 4 months so we'll see how it goes. I was able to go and practice last night and everything felt good and my horse worked well.

I felt pretty good on this run although my paces aren't that fast. I did do a fast(er) finish which raised my HR fairly high. One good thing is my left hip and knee are feeling better than I can every remember, they always have felt a little tweeked. I think running so many slow miles may be strengthening them a little. We'll see when I start picking up the pace.
