After raining all night the air was crisp and clean this morning. I took advantage of that doing an 8 mile run on the trails followed up by a few strides.

Tell me about your “strides” training?

Thanks IJR and Smooth.
Slick, I find that when I through in a few strides after an easy run it helps me work on my form and my speed without beating me up like speed repeats do. I usually do between 4 and 8 100 meter strides with a 100 m walk in between each. I do my strides by building into about 90% of my all out speed over the first 50 meters then holding that for the last 50 meters. I try and keep it feeling relaxed the whole way.
