Injury check: All more or less ok.
A short run today, partly just to try out the new shoes, partly because The Knee has been aching a bit this week and I didn't want to push it.
However, I did manage to keep up 10 km/h for nearly the whole of this run, ending it with a sprint that let me claim a personal best time for this distance.
I also did a whole kilometre as a warm-up jog. Slowly, yes, but it was a whole kilometre - and then I did the 2.5 k run. I had to lie down at the end (yes, really) but I got my breath back more quickly than I have in the past.
All the above may not impress some people, but I am very proud of today.
Footwear verdict: the new shoes are very nice. They're a bit more comfy than my old pair and I think they're a little lighter too.
