On the run

Got up early this morning for a 5K run through downtown Portland, part of the ‘Run for the Cure’ events.  I was pleased with my finish of 21:56, not too bad given my fairly lax training.  Even better was the fact that my legs felt pretty good during and afterwards.

Since June, I’ve been trying to adjust my running style to land on the forefoot, rather than the heel, and after a rather tough month of early attempts (and walks home), it’s starting to pay off.  By landing at the forefoot, there’s more of a spring effect on each step.
