Ahhh. . . . today is 59*F. MUCH better for running! I only had time for 2 miles but I averaged about a 10:35 min/mile pace with my heart rate averaging only 154 bpm, which is a brisk speed for me when it includes my (usually slow) warmup mile.
I just got a new pair of shoes and I think they're a big improvement, and I plan to wear them for the marathon. I am a strictly Asics gal - the men's models come wide enough and sturdy enough for my crappy duck feet. But the last pair I got was a new model (Gel-1120) without much cushion and I started getting some new aches and pains in my feet. Now in this pair (Gel-Foundation 7), after only a couple of runs, they're feeling better. I just wish they'd stop "improving" the shoes and stop discontinuing models that work for me!!
