Juliana and I were up with the sun to hit the track this morning and I was extra excited because I got to try my new shoes!
|Saucony Kinvara 2|
I wore my usual Saucony Progrid Stabil CS for our warm up run from the park, which meant carrying the new ones in my hands; I’m sure it was quite a sight, not that anyone else was awake to see it.
I sat down and laced up when we got to the track and immediately got started on my 800s.
It was love at first lap! The Kinvaras feel light as air. Two of them actually weigh less than one of my usual klunkers, so the difference was incredible. I felt like I was flying.
Workout: 6 x 800 (400 recoveries)
Goal: 3:10-3:19 per 800
Results: 3:11, 3:12, 3:12, 3:12, 3:10, 3:12
I felt great throughout this workout and managed to run a pace equivalent to my 600s last week (4:00/KM, 6:26/mi).
I’m planning to wear these beauties for speed work only for now, and hope to feel comfortable enough to race a 5K in them on July 1st. Look our PR, these shoes make me fast!
