It was a perfect morning for a run with pleasantly cooler temperatures at 6am. Nathan and I started from the Edwin Warner Nature Center and ran in the park, along the Harpeth River Greenway, and through the streets of Bellevue. The schedule called for 10-miles at an easy pace, and it started off a little bit slower than my easy 8-miler yesterday.
However, everything felt good and we slowly worked our way down to a very comfortable 8:00 min pace per mile (Overall average was 8:14). I felt less lingering soreness during the run than I did yesterday and overall it was a very relaxed effort. It was nice to get a chance to discuss the race on Saturday and hear Nathan talk about his experience.
Tomorrow morning the temps are supposed to be down in the mid-30s for our run. I really, really don’t want to wear tights again after having warm weather for the past several weeks, but I’ll do what I need to do.
