Medium-effort run on the Hojack Trail, partly to see if I was recovered from the long run on Saturday, and partly to work on breaking in new shoes. With the dogs. Felt pretty good. I hope to have these new shoes broken in enough to wear in the marathon in 2 weeks.
(Shoes are Asics Gel Kahana; the third pair that I've owned. I like them a lot; they're good for trails (in fact they're billed as trail shoes) and also for roads, and they are extremely cheap, and very durable. In the past, I've gotten them at DSW for $50 but it seems that DSW doesn't carry them any more, so I found them on line for $40 at finishline.com
) (There is a Gel Kahana 2 which I haven't tried; it's somewhat more expensive, around $ 70. Presumably the Gel Kahana is being phased out for the "2", so eventually I'll try the "2" when I can't get the original.)
