I used the asics in my tempo run from he double hockey sticks Tuesday, and slid them on with some trepidation for my speedwork today. Again, after the 4th 800 repeat, the balls of my feet began to ache. They aren't tied tightly...not sure what's going on. Maybe I just forgot the break-in process? Either way, its making my runs suck "baals" and I don't know what to do.
Either way, I did smoke my speedwork....
w/u .5 miles, 8 x 800 @ 7:19/mi, with recovery, .5 mile cooldown
Distance: 6.02 miles
Overall pace: 8:20/mile
Still, I hobbled back to work and immediatly took off my shoes. Not a fan.
