I met up with Rich and James and Richard's house for a nice and slow 10 miler up and down the Monte Sano mountain trails. Considering that I had just tackled the toughest course to date at the H9 50 miler on Saturday, I actually felt pretty good. The temperatures and humidity weren't too bad and my hotspots and blisters didn't feel too bad. I ended up running in my new Montrail Rogue Racers. I figured it wouldn't hurt to change shoes to change the way my feet struck the ground. With the Rogue Racers, I always make a conscientous effort to strike with my forefoot or midfoot rather than my heel. That also slowed my pace quite a bit. We hadn't done the run up and down Tollgate Trail in a while. Rich's and my legs weren't quite as fresh as James', so we took it easy. It felt like a great recovery run to work out the muscle soreness just a bit.
