Karhu Trainer Review

I tried out the new Karhu Flow 3 Trainers late last week- they are on my feet now.

Bright orange for the women's model, gorgeous for spring. I love the lightness of the shoe overall , great for indoor treadmill miles and speed work on the track. 

7.4 oz in weight 

I have used mine for tempo miles leading up to a marathon and the rocker inside the shoe, hugged my ankles perfectly 

Recommended for miles and speed workouts for short durations- light, flexible and responsive.

Getting road ready

After snow and snow in Boston this winter, my training has been mainly inside on the treadmill
I finally feel I am starting to get my 'race' legs back for road racing. I am hopeful the upcoming months I shall be able to run outside daily! 

I ran a 13.1 training race in Michigan Sunday. Mainly dirt roads, hills, and gravel . Very hard footing .

Very cold - 16 at the start. Totally froze!!!!

I ran even and felt fairly good - good prep for 2 rivers marathon this Sunday.

AG win) which was cool!

Best to run with my friends 

getting stronger, not up to par yet

First Race of the Season

New Bedford 13.1

Weather perfect at 38 degrees, overcast , although wind picked up at the end.

Hilly course with a mile  long  hill at mile 11-12, ))

As this was my first outside race of the year and only third outdoor long run of the year, I started very conservative 

I felt good at mile four so I picked it up to my MP. 

Mojo in. Having fun at a race again!
This was my goal. 
Finished in Negative Split and had a great two mile cool down with my team.

Two Rivers Championship marathon in 2 weeks. Goal marathon. This is in PA

The first week of April will be Charlottesville VA marathon 

Reduced miles and better nutrion these 
Weeks to come
