Living Logs:

15 April (t-6) from 15K Marathon

planned 10k but after long time, I was able to run 5k with moderately. Also I got subscription for Strava Premium. (30 days trial) Running in real life feels totally different!

3 April

Walked 20k to get used to this new shoes. It was also more like a digital detox, since I haven't got my phone during the walk.

1 April

New shoes gave me a bad time today, was planned 10k,
but I ran 3k (no joke!), then walked 22min with 12 incline to burn fat, then 15 minutes normal walking

New running shoes! 🥰 Metin also had the same bad experience with his new shoes! 🥲

This one gave me a bad experience, Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 38
