Three weeks of marathon training down and thirteen to go and I am feeling good; mentally and physically. And materially – two new pairs of Brooks Adrenaline GTS 15’s were delivered this week. (If you use this shoe and live in the EU, there is currently a great price available, £55 UKP per pair at Start Fitness. This is not an affiliate link!).
My current pair of GTS 13’s now have 437 miles on them and so on Tuesday I unboxed a pristine pair of GTS 14’s and finished my running week in those. They should be perfectly worn in in time to line up at Brighton in April.
