We did a practice run of a future High Heel Running Group weeknight run. Clockwise might probably be a better way to run the route as it would be flatter to begin with, have a gradual incline (up Interlaken and 19th) and finish going downhill.

10m, 1:28 ~1600′ – CH and 45 min. indoor soccer.
Felt good. Ran faster than I wanted to, partly to beat the oncoming rain and partly so I could make it to my indoor game.

4×1200 meters w/400 meter recovery, 0:50, ~200′ – Seattle U. Track and curling.
Easier than last week, but still these speed workouts are hard. Could be because of the long runs and soccer the day before. Could be because I’ve never really done speed workouts. Could be because they’re supposed to be hard.

Late start and a mid evening Sounders game meant I had to resort to running the streets of Capitol Hill, although looking back on it now it probably was a good thing to log some road miles before the Go! St Louis marathon in 4 weeks. It was the longest I’ve run on road in quite a long while and it was good to actually get a decent stretch of continuous actual running in. Runs on trails through the mountains are always interrupted with
walking hiking sections up hills too steep (for me) to run. With that said I still managed to get a good amount of vert in by basically running from the Lake to the Sound then turning around running the next street over up and over the Hill and back to the Lake. Rinse and repeat for 20 miles, then finish it up with a bit of flat lakeside following a portion of the Seattle Marathon route.

It rained all day and it was cold and yet we still managed to make it out for a run. As much of a mental strength run as it was a recovery run. Finished off the last 3 miles by myself.
