Polished off 12 miles Saturday, followed by 10 today. Ran hard on Saturday with a combined interval, tempo, and hill workout, with paces ranging from 5:30 to 6:50 per mile. On Sunday, I planned a 10 mile easy run and I ran relaxed but I ran much faster than planned maintaining a 7:15 pace.
I put the insole back in my Evo's and I'm still not sure if I prefer to have it in or out. With the insole in, I have a much snugger feel, and without the insole, I have a bit more ground feel. The Evo is a true minimalist running shoe with out 4mm of sole and a 2.5mm insole.
I'm very pleased with the new focus on middle distances, 5k to 10k. I'm really starting to learn how to run. I think we continue to approach running the wrong way. We should encourage folks to spend years concentrating on 5k/10k, then move to the half, then the full marathon if they so desire instead of buying shoes, adopting some 3-4 day running program and trying to run a marathon. Of course, that requires patience.
