New Shoes

Did 7 miles @ recovery pace which included 8 strides. It was supposed to be a General Aerobic run, but I tried out a new pair of shoes today, Asics 2130. These have been in my closet since I bought them at the Napa marathon expo a little over a year ago. Anyhow, my feet didn't adjust to them that well and the soles of my feet were aching quite a bit during the run, so i couldn't really run much faster than a slow recovery pace. Probably averaged about 9:40min/miles or so. Strides felt a bit weird cause the shoes felt like they were going to come flying off. I have to look a bit closer at the lacing. I'll do my recovery runs in these things for the next few weeks which should hopefully give me enough time to adapt.
