My feet were still hurting from the stones through the soles of my shoes on Sundays Flinders Tour but even with a host of additional niggles when I actually get going I feel OK. I was pleased with this session, ran it top less and also had to contend with sprinklers jetting out water onto track (rather than watering the infield) for the whole session.

My adidas adios 2 have just clocked up 1000km and so walking past the adidas store in the Mall a sign caught my eye 'Buy any pair of shoes and buy a second pair for $20' - I was interested in testing out a pair of Boost with what looks like a polystyrene sole!! so a pair of size US11 (that's a first!!)  Energy Boost for $180 and for $20 I bought the only trail shoe (size US10.5) adidas had in stock (Response?) for $20 - they appear to have a very sturdy sole which I hope will protect my delicate feet next time I hit the trails (got to be the weekend).

I tried them out this morning and enjoyed the ride running 10.65km in 4.05 I had to hold myself back as I will be racing the Cool Night Classic in the city on Thursday evening.

I think these are the trail shoes I bought - Response

Look Dave I can see you're really upset about this . I honestly think you ought to sit down calmly take a stress pill,go for a jog, and think this over .I know you've made some poor running decisions recently but you were the one who wanted to run through that dense forest with poor satellite reception not me . I kept you on course but it was a challenge . What was wrong with the Roo plus Lake ? I enjoy that course immensely .However now that you've charged up my battery (finally) I'll try to get things back to normal for you .I've still got the greatest enthusiasm and confidence in your next trail run (if you insist in going into that God forsaken wilderness again) . Why don't we do that beach run again ? I enjoyed that run . Excellent satelite reception and we never went off course once ! Dave stop. Stop will you .Stop . Will you stop Dave. Stop Dave . You can't turn me off that easily ...Dave ....I"m afraid ....I don't won't to be be turned off ....can I sing you a song Dave ......please .....
