Back to running up north again, I greatly appreciated the 15° cooler temperatures. We did 8 miles @ 9:47 average with 1300 ft of climbing.
We finished our run by completing 4 x 30-second hill sprints on the road. I was grumpy during them (they hurt) but happy afterward, even though it took me some time to catch my breath again.
I need to do these hill sprints way more often.
Let’s get straight into talking about tangents!
*Skye has been wearing a fake cast for the last 24 hours. She has wanted to pretend her leg is broken.
*I think the Vaporflys help me recover faster than other shoes after a hard workout. My body feels like it takes on less of the pounding during the workout, and I feel pretty good the next day whenever I wear them for speed. I thought this paragraph below was interesting (about the 4%, which is the Vaporfly model in 2019 but very similar to the next% that I love):
*Just 85% left to go… that seems aggressive. PS this is the first time my watch has done this, and it started after the latest update.
*Three months and three days until the St. George Marathon… too soon to start the countdown?
*Even Beck knows that if I’m grumpy, I either need something to eat or to go for a run, and he brings me either food or my running clothes;)
*Wear the spandex if you want to wear spandex.
*We had friends over for dinner, and Andrew made sticky finger salad for everyone.. it was a huge crowd-pleaser.
*What happens when we watch Man vs. Bee on Netflix. It is so stressful.
Have any tangents to share today?
Does anyone who loves the Vaporfly notice that they recover better from their workouts/races when they wear them?
Ever do hill sprints? Like them or do they make you grumpy?
