Third run in a row with high humidity, but at least it was slightly cooler. This morning Paxton, Nathan, and I did a very chilled pace 7.5-mile run through Bellevue. I ran in my Saucony Hattoris and felt pretty good throughout. I did feel a little soreness from doing P90X Legs and Back on Monday night and P90X Ab Ripper X last night, but overall it was not a big deal.
This may sound strange, but one thing I like about the Hattoris (that I haven’t mentioned before) is that they make it easier to run a very slow pace. When I run in my Kinvaras, or even my old Nike Vomeros, on a recovery run day, I almost always end up running a bit too fast. This is never an issue with the Hattoris because I have so much more feel for the road and my lower legs are more involved in the run.
Tomorrow will be a “marathon” day-trip to NYC (6am flight up there, 4 meetings back-to-back, 9:30pm flight back), so no running or cross training. I hope to get in an easy 2-mile shakeout run on Friday before the Oak Barrel Half Marathon on Saturday.
