Early Christmas present to myself arrived today.  Look at the massive lugs on these suckers!  Just got some snow on Monday and now sunny the rest of the week.  Should be a primo mix of snow/ice/mud/slop by the weekend to test these out.

I think I'm finally ready to try to improve my speed, rather than just run a million billion miles. Anyone have any good links/plans to improve speed? Will probably run another marathon in January 2019.

Also try to move your legs just a little bit faster.

That's right. Just mix in some hills and fartleks. You still want 75-80% of your volume to be moderate effort or easier.

If you run four days a week, rotate one run a week between hill repeats and quarter or half mile tempos.

My best 5K times are during the end of a marathon build when I was pushing higher volume tempo runs midweek and long slow weekend runs.

Got a couple good runs in with the new Altras.  Cross post to Vision Quest thread.

Just got a replacement pair of Topo's for Christmas and I'm jealous I don't have all that snow to run in!
