8km Recovery Pace Run + Strength: Week 4 Day 2

Distance:8.03 km
Avg Pace:5:50 min/km
Elevation Gain:90 m
Avg HR:137 (74%)
Max HR:151 (82%)
Easy run in the new Asics Hyperspeed 5's. They feel pretty good, very light, fairly firm, heaps of room in the forefoot. Not sure if thats good or bad yet as it seemed like there was a bit of movement. Probably need to get the lacing sorted better. Definitely feel more like a flat than the Adios. Was expecting them to be softer underfoot than they are. Pretty grippy. Felt like I wasn't collecting the heel on the ground as much as I would in the Adios. Will do a couple more easy runs before getting them out for the longer sessions. They feel like a quick shoe.
