I've set up camp in an airport hotel bar ready for my early morning flight.
VT, I'm prepping for a marathon. I've lifted the quality sessions out of one of the schedules from the Hudson/Fitzgerald book and ditched all the easy running to keep the volume down for injury prevention. I'm gambling on having enough base / cardio fitness already in the bank so just trying to sharpen up. Sub 3 on under 40miles per week? Interesting experiment*.
Fishy, recovery from anything long is noticeably quicker with Hokas too. The only downside is that they are really ugly. Next race is off- road and my Hokas are roady ones so I'll be wearing my Salomon S-Lab Ultra Sense shoes which are the finest shoes I've ever owned.
* I don't really have another option.
