Trail Running 1:16:00  4.0 mi (19:00 / mi)
slept:6.0 shoes: Salomon Spikecross
Ran EP Sawyer in the dark with the spikecross shoes to further break them in and to see how well they did in the Ice and snow. The upside is they did pretty well, they provide better traction as expected but the pins won't grab on hard frozen ice at all, offering a special surprise when hitting an Icy spot. This can be a problem because the spike provide a lot of confidence otherwise so this little surprise can be a problem. The shoes need more break in time but I think they are coming along, I would like to see what a pair of the Icebug shoes does compared to these.
My other new item is a Fenix 900 lumen headlamp. This thing is amazing, even at low power it completely outshines my old headlamp, offering a wide view and good light beam range even on the low power setting. On high it easily threw light the length of a football field and more, something the local deer and coyote population discovered last night.
All in all a good work out. I am going to work on trying to improve trail running form and pacing in the next few weeks.
