I’ve lost count of the number of training cycles I’ve done. At least two a year for the last 4 years. And every cycle surprises me. I get excited watching my Garmin data change as my fitness level increases. I can feel myself getting faster and stronger and building on the progress made in the previous training cycle.
My resting HR has suddenly plummeted into the low 40s. I did a tempo run this morning at a sub-9 pace, and it didn’t feel stupid. It felt awesome and powerful, and the prospect of running another 10 miles at that pace seems doable.
I finally did something this morning that I have been wanting to do for almost two years. I signed up for Oiselle Volee. I love everything Oiselle is about. Power. Strength. Incredibly comfortable running clothes that make you feel powerful and strong.
