Started the day off with 20 minutes of easy spinning on the trainer and then eased back into normal training this evening with 1:13 of tempo. Average heart rate was 151. With the wind I was able to maintain a fairly consistent effort which is the only positive comment I have regarding the weather. My toes were cold even with wool socks and toe booties. I guess my new Specialized shoes breathe better than my old Shimanos. Speaking of which, if anybody wants a free pair of 2003 Shimano R215 road shoes in US size 10.5 (EU 45 according to the tag) let me know. The fabric liner is quite worn but they felt fine on the bike at the time they were retired from active duty. As you might expect the carbon soles have their share of scratches but again, this doesn't impact performance at all. The original insoles were replaced last year with a pair of gray Superfeet insoles. The shoes are silver with black straps & buckle and yellow accents. At the time of purchase they were the best shoes in the Shimano line.
