It’s wise to regularly buy new running shoes. Every now and then, when I have run faster on hard surface, I have had some small hip problems. Well, this run was mostly on hard surface, I had a new pair of Asics Gel-Nimbus 12 running shoes, and hip pain disappeared during the run, literally!

Monday’s run was easy for muscles, but otherwise a bit demanding. Tuesday’s run was at the end a bit tough for muscles, but otherwise light. I was prepared to have Today a tough run for muscles, but eventually it was very much similar to yesterday’s run aka OK.

Yesterday’s 25 km run had some effect for today’s 25 km run – as I expected. But overall today’s run went pretty swell.
