That’s it

Trails in Forest Park are getting muddy and slippery and I’m on a string of zippy runs since last week. I feel like I could start to do some double days with a night run in the evening if I want to bump up to 40 miles/week.

31 miles last week was a good load. Everything was dialed. My cycling commute is reduced to nearly half of what is was and I haven’t been riding the Mundo – it leaves me with more capacity for runs and still gives me some cycling recovery during the week. Bueno.

Saving daylight.

I’m on the lookout for a fall trail shoe.
8oz or less with some medial posting and small lugs for the trails (and smooth enough for my passage through the city to Forest Park). Maybe it’s a unicorn shoe.

    My Salomon Sense Pros get very close to that weight (8.5 oz.) The lugs are small but amazingly effective on all but mud. I think they were made with transitioning from pavement to trail in mind.
