THIS is Colorado!
Today I repeated the morning routine and was happy to have the sun call me out of bed once again. Today I went for the new VO2 workout, called 30/30s that Karen shared with me. She and Stan coach the high school track team and are a wealth of knowledge for workouts. In addition to this 30/30 workout Stan and I discussed some different training tactics while out on the trail.
So the 30/30s is pretty simple to do, warm up then run hard for 30 secs, then back off for 30 sec, repeat 30 times. I took this out on the trails, actually the last couple miles of the Hardrock course (in the counter clockwise direction) and then ended the last 6 repeats on the local track. The first couple are pretty easy but as you get further into the workout the down 30 seconds isn’t enough time to recover and your heart rate stays up there. The last 5 were tough for me.

These are glorious Silverton days!
