- Speedwork does, in fact, make you faster and stronger.
- Speedwork makes you feel like a badass. When I started doing Yasso 800s 2 months ago, the thought of doing 2 of them at a 9mm pace was laughable. Yesterday I did 6. And I didn't die.
- You can do speedwork almost anywhere. The track, on a treadmill, or in loops around your neighborhood. I haven't tried them on the track yet because it's football season and the high school track is a little busy after school, but I really like running the 1/2 mile loop in my neighborhood - even if my neighbors think I'm a bit insane.
- When you tweet about your speedwork, Bart Yasso might actually tweet you back. :)
That tweet totally made my morning. I joke that I'm a real runner now because Bart Yasso tweeted me, but really I've been a badass mother runner all along.
Who would you love to get a tweet from? Have you ever received a tweet from someone "famous"?
