4/14/3013 Training Journal / First Run in Hokas

April 14, 2013 — 1 Comment

This morning, I did a nice, 12-mile run up in Alum Rock Park (Boccardo Peak, South Rim, and North Rim.)  It was my first run in my new Hoka One One Stinson EVOs, which I’d been wearing around the house since Tuesday – anxious to road test them.

The run went pretty good, but I did have some cramping/burning in the toes of my left foot on the last half of the run (which I’ll work out with lacing) and my hip is a bit sore this afternoon (which I’ve heard is common when first trying Hokas.)  Overall though, it was a great first run; I did notice the cush factor for sure. More to follow on these babies…which are keepers.

Since I am on taper for Big Sur, I took it slower than usual today and actually took a few pictures:


Have a great week!
