Run Efficient: A Road Run?

A Road Run?

Went to the Wohelo Trail head and back on the road today just to get a quick run in without driving, or biking to a trail head. Ran with the Inov-8 X-Talon 212's and felt pretty good mixing up road and shoulder the whole way. I definitely want a road pair of Inov-8's though as I could feel the heat of the asphalt, feel the soft rubber and aggressive lug pattern. Not real used to road running and although it felt good and peppy at times, it's a whole bunch different than the trails. All-in-all it was real good to feel the warm day, slight wind and smell the marsh along the way.

efficiency: Kept on the balls of my feet, still consciously working on forefoot striking.

distance: 8
duration: 1:02:20
pace: 7:48

I commented that as long as 50.1% of your run was on a dirt shoulder you can log it as a trail run. I guess blogger didn't like my comment.

That's a great point. The funny thing is by the end of the run I just want to get home, get a good time, and push it... Which means feeling the quickness of the asphalt and enjoying the speed!
