Went to Endurance House and bought Altra Torin road runners, took them out this afternoon for a test run, and they felt great. My Altra Instincts were ready for relief. Here is a look:
This was a paved run, whereas I had become used to dirt trails of late. The paved run in hybrid barefoot / road shoes did challenge my lower calves and knees with the need to stretch from time to time in the last 3 miles. I pulled a sock off that was pulling my little toes too hard as I ran.
