15-20 minute walk. In flip flops, because the tips of my toes are blistered.

With the addition of cycling, this was my first 40+ mile week for 2009. As the weather gets warmer, I'm looking forward to seeing my first 60, 80, and 100 mile weeks of the year. Won't be this week though, because we've snapped back to winter temps (40-50 degrees).

Also, I think it might be time to start shopping for new running shoes. I've been alternating my two pairs of Asics, and keep the "good" pair out of the everyday shorter runs, but my feet were a bit achy after 13.1 miles on Saturday. They only have 340 miles and six months on them (thank you, Runners World training log), so they aren't too beat up. It's probably time to drop them to short run (3-6 mile) status, and get some shiny new shoes. The oldest pair, which was actually my first pair of shoes specifically for running (14 months ago), will move to regular house & yardwork wear.
