I am on to day three of my new running shoes: the Hoka One One Stinson Lite
Observations so far:
Knee doesn’t know its gone for a run, lower back/SI joint are responding favorably.
Quads and glues are like WTF?! Apparently what I was doing at the gym is no where near the simplicity of ‘gone running’. This has always been the case for me though, nothing gets me fit faster than a nice daily jog.
I’ve started out sort of slow, 3 mile runs max being as i’ve been all indoor on elliptical or stair monster for past 8 months.
With a bit of perseverance I even changed the battery in my old Polar HR Monitor/watch. I’d forgotten how cool the proximity sensor was. I need to remember to increase the top end. When sprinting intervals its kind of embarrassing to be beep beeping along when my HR gets over 158.
