Trail running 45:00  4.3 mi (10:28 / mi) +60m 10:02 / mi
shoes: New Balance MT 101
Run to work. Trying out my brand new trail shoes. Indian Summer with above 70 degree temps. Since I had time before meetings I added extra loops on the near-faded trails of NW College Woods. Practiced a good form and even pace with same breathing even on the uphills - I did achieve this by smaller but faster steps. I noticed much less stress on the legs and knees even with moderate uphill acceleration. That is a good strategy for the long distances coming up (Highlander and Road Marathon).
Woods are soo lovely. Wish I'd be outside all day.
