Exercise day! It felt so good to be again collectively!
Twelve miles @ 7:27 common. 2-mile w/u, 3-mile tempo (6:06 tempo), 1 mile simple, 1 MTC mile (the downhill mile we do typically in 5:15), c/d. I felt actually good for the primary time post-marathon.
I’ve just a few experiments I’m working on myself for the remainder of the yr… I like looking for out precisely what works greatest for my coaching, and so I like attempting out new issues:
*I’m going to run much less mileage. Life is busy proper now, and I feel I’ll run sooner with much less mileage (together with biking too)! The load of life proper now and 80 miles per week was simply an excessive amount of. I’m having fun with feeling a lot extra vitality with much less mileage recently.
*Taking my w/u, c/d, and recoveries slower throughout exercises. For the previous few months, I’ve been attempting my hardest to remain up with the sooner group throughout these parts of the exercise, however I feel taking these parts slower will enable me to run sooner.
*I’m returning to doing all my exercises in footwear aside from the Nike Vaporfly like I did earlier than Boston 2022. I really feel just like the Vaporfly is my quickest shoe, and I need to save them for races now. I feel switching my footwear round for exercises will assist strengthen my legs/ft after which come race day, it would really feel like a deal with to have my Vaporflys on and assist me to run my quickest on the times that really matter–> race day.
BUT, I’ll say the Adizero and Saucony Endorphin Professional 3 are a really shut second place for velocity. These had been a lot enjoyable to run in yesterday. I need to do just a few extra exercises in them earlier than I write a assessment, however the foam on these saved making me smile. So long as I put on taller socks with them (I bled on the again the primary time I wore them), my ft and physique are in heaven.

Skye requested rice bowls afterward and we met up with my in-laws to eat lunch outdoors.
