Sun, skirt and short sleeves. I am back in my running element!
My Newtons seem to still remember, though. They were making a funny sound when I laced up today:
Yeah, this probably isn’t how you expected to spend 11 seconds of your life. But what do you think? Snow got in there and melted and now it’s water? We’ll see how they do the day after tomorrow. [Maybe I should make this a daily 11-second jumping-video update? Contain your excitement, people.]
Anyways. Back to running and amazing discoveries. Today I realized that yes: running at high altitude (7,000ft elevation, give or take 200) and on hilly, snowy course seems to improve performance, indeed. Even short term!
In fact, I felt so fresh throughout this whole run, I decided to push it a little at the end and ran the 10th mile at a sub-8 min/ mile pace. To be exact: 7:46. Bam!
Your turn to overshare: What was your strongest-you-ever-felt run like? What about your coldest-ever snot-freezing run?
