Another day, another easy-paced run with Nathan in Bellevue. Today’s schedule called for 6-miles at easy pace followed by 4 x 100m stride outs. As has become somewhat routine for Wednesdays, I ran in my Hattoris which inevitably made the pace a little slower than the easy-paced runs on Monday and Tuesday.
I’ve done so much running in Bellevue recently that I suggested to Nathan that we mix it up a bit with a lap around the old, and empty, Bellevue Center Mall (it’s a bit depressing). Our first mile was just under 10-minute pace before we dropped it down to a consistent 8:40ish pace for the remaining miles. My legs still continue to improve after the race on Saturday, with no more lingering soreness.
We ended up doing the 4 x 100m stride outs in the parking lot of Bellevue Church of Christ. This is the first time I’ve ever done stride outs in my Hattoris, but it felt pretty good. I actually feel like I have the capacity for a much faster turnover when I’m up on my forefoot.
No scheduled run tomorrow morning, but tomorrow night is track practice with the JSRC.
