I went on an outing to Hampstead Heath today.
I was very lucky to get an invitation to the launch of a new running shoe. From the press information it sounded like my kind of shoe plus the afternoon was going to include a bit of a trail run on Hampstead Heath. I’m rather partial to a bit of running shoe chat and enjoy trying new innovations and models and have always wanted to run on Hampstead Heath. Win Win!
Teva the outdoor footwear people (best known for their sport sandals and hiking boots) are launching a running shoe ,the Tevasphere, in the UK this March. We had presentations from Teva and from the independent sport science lab that helped develop the shoe. Then we put on a pair and went for a trail run on Hampstead Heath where we got up to our ankles in mud and ran up some hills. (I might be training a bit too much on the flat!)
I will post a full review with photos and all the information very soon when I’ve got the photos, had a couple more runs in them and put them through their paces at a British Military Fitness class. I also need to get them cleaned up for another photo. From first impressions I think I’m going to like them.
Janathon day 10.
2.79 mile trail run plus an extra 2.2mile dash around the block because I was feeling keen after a very good afternoon.
