Disclosure: I received a free pair of Thorlos socks to review and two pairs to give away to my readers. I have also purchased Thorlos Experia socks myself and all opinions are my own based on my experience with the product.
|Obviously I missed my calling as a sock model!|
I originally bought some Experia socks for the fun colors...I had no idea that I was buying a sock that would protect my feet as well. I wasn't aware that as we age we lose the fatty pads that help protect our feet as we walk and run. Below illustrates how the Thorlo padding aligns with your natural foot structure to provide cushioning under those fat pads to absorb the impact. So in addition to all this great benefit to your feet you can also match your running outfits or shoes with the 15 different colors offered! I usually feel feet fatigue after wearing work shoes that have little structure. I can see how helpful the cushioning is to help reduce that shock and impact and keep my feet happy. The cushioning is engineered to help transfer the forces as you walk and run from the fat pads of your foot to the tightly knitted loops of the cushion pads.
Happy Feet matter so that you can have Speedy Feet! Our Thorlo rep attended our track session and that night we focused on a true progression workout. Give this workout a try next time you are looking to build your aerobic capacity and also work progressively harder in order to train your body to function and process through lactic acid buildup. It was a tough workout and looking back through my data file I was very happy to see that I did execute the progressive build on my pace. I need to push a little harder to differentiate between 1000m and 800m pace though since those intervals were all pretty close. I tend to keep a little left in the tank just in case and usually my ending intervals are my strongest.
Thorlos Happy Feet Speedy Feet Progression Track Workout
Warm up - 10-20 minutes at easy pace.
Main Set -
2 x 1000
2 x 800
2 x 400
2 x 200
Run each interval at a progressively faster pace. Take 1 minute rest between each interval. The 200's at the end should be at or near your all out pace. If you are like me, you'll finish feeling a little on the pukey side. That's okay...that means you were working it!
Cool down - 10 minutes at easy pace
