First Run With Salming Trail 5

Grandpa Cold has to be a runner too. He brought me another pair of running shoes as a New Year's gift.

Salming Trail 5

Yes, another pair of Salming shoes. I love this Swedish company. They really know what they are doing and producing.

Tonight I took the Trail 5 with me for the first time. We enjoyed it a lot. It was rainy and cold and we took a 6 K long run on a tarmac road which was riddled with pools and covered with a soft carpet of decaying leaves.

Keep in mind that these shoes are not winter shoes. The mesh is airy and doesn't keep the water out. So I was wet but who cares. The main thing is that the upper is soft yet firm and that the sole has a great grip. It's Vibram too so these shoes will excel on the proper trails.

Now they'll rest for a while since I'll be using Inov-8 Roclite 350 for winter trail running. They are warmer and water repellent after all.

It's such a great feeling to dirty a brand new pair of shinny running shoes.





I love those almost symmetrical altitude profiles with a peak in the center.

Running Adventures of a Streak Runner
Running Adventures of a Streak Runner

What is a 'streak runner', you might ask? It is a person who runs every day. In my case, two miles is a minimum. I've been doing this stunt for 502 days already, since July the 3rd 2019. On that fine day, I decided it's better to run every day and be happy than to run occasionally and be grumpy. YOu are welcome to follow me and my runs. Every day if you wish :)
