Last time I was in New York (late November 2017)I took my running stuff and had a couple of runs around Central Park, the cool dry air is perfect for running in I think.Back in New York today after a couple of months in extremely hot weather (35 degrees pretty much every day).
Lovely and cool and just got some proper running shoes (highly recommended btw, went and got the 3D scan of my ankles and feet as well as gait analysis and got some asics numbers - ugly as fuck and only had the ones with this rascal bright orange sole on them but they feel amazing) so got out there straight away.
5Km in 24:30 which I was happy with as I haven’t been able to get anywhere near that in the heat. My record was 20:30 back in cool April when I was running regularly so hoping to get back to that.
Looking at my splits the pace is still there and I’m way better in the cool weather but I was just gassed after the first mile:
