Last week I picked up some new running shoes and this weekend I hit the pavement! I love my new shoes. They're lightweight but supportive. Compared to my worn-down pair they feel so springy! And I love the yellow laces. (Yellow is my favorite color btw.)
It was a beautiful, spring-like day on Sunday so I went to a nearby canal trail and ran about 3 miles. Overall, I had a pretty good run. I started feeling some minor IT band pain so I took a couple of breaks to stretch and walk during the 3 miles.
But the first few runs are always the hardest. I need to be diligent about stretching and icing and of course about keeping up the running!
