I'm feeling quite ambivalent about the trail run I did on Sunday. I enjoyed the outdoors and all but really struggled on route. It could be one of three things :- initially I thought it was the pre-race coffee that got me going, then a friend gave me flu tablets and suggested I have a bit of sickness coming on and third is my shoes (or lack thereof).
Just as I am contemplating running in my old road Asics at Groenkloof on Sunday, I come across this article on this blog.
Now, Robert Shackelford isn't speaking about trail running and there is a big difference between road and trail. Nevertheless, it got me thinking and debating and doubting and thinking and debating and doubting again. What will I put on my feet on Sunday?
