8 miles Richmond/Catterick circular
Just checked the times on the last three runs over this 8 mile route.
1st run on December 18th. Time:- 01:30:37
2nd run on January 16th. Time:- 01:23:37
This morning. Time:- 01:23:37
This morning was a minimalist run wearing £5 Plimsolls. Felt Really comfortable with no problem other than a slight aching in the back of my left leg after the run but starting to wear off now. (Think I just found muscles I didn't know I had),)
During the run I thought I was going a lot faster than last time but on uploading the data and comparing times over the same route I find it was exactly the same as last week (to the second) when I was wearing my expensive Asics.
This was also my longest run yet with minimalist footwear and I can't find a reason why I shouldn't push it further.
Check here to see comparisons.
