On the Grid Again

5mi. No rain! First workout in 5 days outdoors as what is being described as “once in a century” rains and floods hit South Florida. I believe the rain has brought some cooler temps, that’s good.

I am entered in the Full Moon 10 mile race on Saturday night. Previously held at JD State Park, the DTR group has this year’s event at Oleta River State Park. My best run shoes for that type of sand, hard pack and “obstacles” are Saucony Grid Peregrine. I’ve used them for some of the North Face 50 milers, they will be better than a flat bottomed shoe. These have some gripper treads on the bottom that will help with the terrain. I wanted to drop a recent set of inserts in there and try them at track.

1 mile cool down jog

I did well in the shoes, purposely taking a “notch” off the speed of today’s intervals with the race Saturday ahead. We had a small group this morning, maybe they are used to the rain and the sleeping late! Brian brought Dale’s hat from last week, and finishing up I chose to cool down barefoot on the inside nice grass of the track. That felt good!

Equipment shakedown

3mi  Today John and I did a loop of the Dyer Park trails – specifically the hill course. I wore my Saucony trail shoes, mid thickness socks, and shorts with no shirt. John had issues with his one hip hurting, but he finished the run up and around the hill. Everything I brought worked well and fit properly. My ankles weren’t tested and I feel good for the race.
