So happy to be able to join them for a Wednesday workout. I met them a little bit later than they started but I’ll take every mile I can get with them.
8 miles total @ 7:36 average with 3 MTC miles in there. The MTC miles are the ones that are partly flat but mostly downhill that we do. As we were doing them I couldn’t believe that we used to do 10 of them (but that’s the fun part about running… the buildup!).
The downhill of these mile repeats helps you to really get your legs to turnover faster and trick your body/mind into thinking running that fast is normal for you so that you can do it on flat/downhill/uphill sections in races:). The recovery after each mile repeat is back up to the start which means it is uphill and we can never decide what is harder—> the fast mile or the “recovery” back up to the start.
You know you are working hard when you take off layers with this temperature…
I took the Hyperion Elite from Brooks out for the day and I just loved them. They have a carbon plate in them and yet they are so so light. You really feel a bounce in these shoes and I’m excited to race in them this summer.
When I am just doing easy miles I can get away with not doing all of the extra things but now that I am adding in a few miles of speed each week, it’s time to get back to them. My R8 recovery roller, BCAAs, recovery boots, pure wave massager and stretching are back!
This thing attacked my quads yesterday ha.
After school we were able to get up to Sundance to ski.
I did the hard work of cuddling Beck in the lodge:)
The other day I saw Mel’s Kitchen Cafe post a recipe for cinnamon chip scones and I knew I needed to make them.
90% of today’s post was written like this… I think the sound of the keys clicking acts like a sound machine for him;)
Who has tried out any of the running shoes with carbon plates in them? Which ones?
Do you sleep with any type of sound machine or fan?
-I LOVE falling asleep to the sound of a fan next to me.
What are some of the little things that you do to keep you running healthy!?
Tell me one reason why you are grateful for running?
