Easy 8 today, just enough to give the Merrell Bare Access 2 a proper first look. My legs felt great today with the typical pace bump that happens the day immediately following a workout.
The shoes were also enjoyable. Firm, but responsive. They feel like they would be too firm when just standing around, but once running they have enough flexibility to suit my tastes. I made sure to hit a mix of pavement, gravel, grass, trail, and loose dirt. Although these shoes are made for the road, I liked them most on packed trails. I wouldn't take them out for trail runs on a wet day, however, as I'm sure they'd slide all over the place with the flat outsole. Honestly, I think some people might like them as a racing flat. We'll see how they perform over the course of a few hundred training miles...
