After a slow couple hours around the 1/2 mara course last night with
W, I headed out to the Ironbark Basin for some trail running today.
It was too hot for the dogs so ran solo. Had the new Montrails on:
Highlanders. Not bad. I stashed the camelbak at the top of the
Jarosite track to give them a good test on the down hill (bit hard to
go full tilt with 5kgs on the back). Went hard over some really
tricky steep technical stuff and they hung in there. They are low
profile so you can really feel the trail. And great traction. I jog/
walked back up and did it again it was so much fun. Gave a litle
knowing nod of approval and went back up to collect the pack. Did 3
1/2 hours straight out of the box with no problems. A little narrow
in the toe box put a little pressure on the little toes (worse
because the Injinjis spread the toes) but not enough to worry about.
Will be perfect for 6' and Maroondah. Wouldn't use them for anything
longer because of the lack of protection and support. They will be my
new short course racing runner. Had a great run. The fatigue from C2K
is slowly leaving the legs but the glutes are still really tight.
Must get another massage: ouch!
