A group of friends were doing a speed workout yesterday, so I decided to go and see how I felt for it… The bandaid has been ripped off. That first workout after recovering from a marathon (and then time off from being sick) is always a doozy.
I just ignored paces and focused on doing my best during the intervals and not pushing too hard after being sick.
Three hill sprints (each about .2 miles), 2 miles, 1 mile. I know I was WAY off in my paces from where I used to be, but that is how it always goes for me, and in a few weeks, I’ll be back. 10.36 miles @ 7:36 average, and just SO happy to be healthy again.
PS the vaporflys feel like skis on the snow.
Luckily, we weren’t in the snow for long, and our speed work was done on safe streets/sidewalks.
Another pro for winter running is that my Core Power is basically frozen like a milkshake when I get in the car to drink it on the drive home.
Any traditions you are fitting into between now and the holiday?
Tell me a pro for winter running!
What are you eating after a run these days?
Anyone else reading go to BYU?
