#slightwork in the weight room, I think. Legs a little extra tired this morning after our #midweeklongrun at Island Lake Park. All I know is that I'm ready for a @zingermansdeli sandwich (Number 2: Zing's Reuben with an old style pickle, please) to celebrate being done for the day. #workoutwednesday #xendurance #teamrungum #rollrecovery

We all know the feeling. You've just crushed a hard workout. High fives all around. And then the legs and lungs finally start to send the "I hate you" signal to the brain. Ouch. The group manages the warm down only through post-session comradery and collective revelation that awaiting your return to the track are doughnuts and chocolate milk. Ravenous, but playing it cool, you wait for your @verynicetrackclub teammates and coach to look away for just one second so you can have a moment to yourself. A single solitary moment to indulge in some of the finer things in life. Then... caught in the act (by @juliannzathlete) like Gollum trying to steal the ring. "My precious!" ————————————— You gotta do what you gotta do to lock down the sprinkles (aka hundreds and thousands) 🍩. #VeryNiceTC #recovery #crushedit

#Repost @verynicetrackclub ・・・ Celebrated @willisnick's last day as a 31-year-old with a "Speed Sunday" session. Form running is Ronnie's forté. Having his watchful eye (and subsequent critique) as we run "fast & relaxed" is an integral part to staying composed at the end of a race. Don't forget to wish Nick a Happy Birthday 🎉 tomorrow! #VeryniceTC

"What did he eat? Did he believe in isometrics? Isotonics? Ice and heat? ... What did he have to say about yoga, yogurt, Yogi Berra? What was his pulse rate, his blood pressure, his time for the 100-yard dash? What was the secret, they all wanted to know in a thousand different ways the secret. And not one of them was prepared, truly prepared to believe that it had not so much to do with chemicals and zippy mental tricks as it did with that most unprofound process and sometimes heart-rending process of removing, molecule by molecule, the very tough soles of his running shoes." -Once a Runner Intrigued as to how I exhaust my shoes? Do yourself a favor and download the Sweat Mobile (@sweat_mobile) app. Lots of great stuff to discover.

Dearly beloved We are gathered here today To get through this thing called life Electric word life It means forever and that's a mighty long time But I'm here to tell you There's something else The after world A world of never ending happiness You can always see the sun, day or night. ————————————— Another music icon gone too soon. Minnesota will always remember and celebrate your genius. #Prince

Putting out the #vibe. @willisnick has returned to Ann Arbor from Flagstaff brandishing more than just an elevated red blood cell count and a #SpringBreak2016 tan. Here he is seen modeling some fashion tips picked up during altitude camp from our Scandinavian friends. On another note, the Very Nice Track Club (@vntc_track), along with a guest appearance by #BobbyCurtis, celebrated this near perfect day with a lovely 90-minute midweek long run. #verynice #manpris

Post-workout nutrition doesn't always have to be difficult: a Washtenaw Dairy doughnut and chocolate milk. Truly remarkable how much inspiration I get from these little beauties waiting for me at the end of my warm down. Thanks for the tradition, Ronnie. #verynice

In Ann Arbor fewer than 24 hours and Ronnie has us crushing (or being crushed by?) a #Michigan. Quite excited for the next 6 weeks of training with the Very Nice Track Club in front of our coach, something we haven't really been able to do for the last 2 years. @willisnick @juliannzathlete @hamishcarson @eric_speakman @craig.huffer @lexwillliams @geoffreyburns 📷: @1800.run.fast
