I get to feel like a track star for a bit. :)
I am really enjoying my second time though the TCI program thus far. Last time it was all about adjusting to the form changes and getting used to running a little slower during most of my easy runs. This time, I have really been able to focus on the bigger picture. Instead of just trying to make sure I land on the forefoot and get my cadence down, I can really tune in to the entire form (stability, consistency, and fluidity).
A huge thanks to Eric the book and this site! I can't say enough about his generosity in providing feedback and guidance to those of us who ask for it.
Good point. My legs feel faster even when running easy. BTW, my pace at HRZ 2 is 45 seconds faster than it was in November. I had a hard time believing it at first and thought maybe my HR strap was malfunctioning, but it has been that way for several days now. I am still sort of in disbelief.
