Did anyone else just catch the 400 meter hurdles final? Holy crap…

Wade van Niekerk ran a 43.03 in the 2016 Olympics and hasn't been anywhere close to that since.I was wondering what he could do in a flat race. Seems like he should be able to run pretty fast…
My oldest daughter is into climbing so we were watching the full replay of the men's qualifying last night and I've got to say that along with sprinting, the sport climbing may be one of the more perfect Olympic events in terms of watching on TV. Admittedly, we didn't watch any of the lead climbing but the bouldering and especially the speed climbing are perfect on TV: little rest between heats, very quick action, and so easy to understand what's going on.I climbed at the gym for 30 minutes while out running errands. I worked a few harder problems, but most notably flashed V5 for the first time in a few months.
I saw the mom (Robyn Erbesfield-Raboutou is a legend in her own right) of one the US climbing Olympians. I look forward to watching Brooke compete (women’s climbing starts early tomorrow morning MDT).
Maybe it's time to get reacquainted with your old friend ALICE?11.1mi, 7:36/mi, 143bpm
Track workout today. I need to figure out a better method of carrying my spikes and water bottle to the track. It’s about 2.25mi from my house and I like the idea of that being my WU & CD. I’ve been using a lightweight drawstring bag and it’s pretty annoying having that thing flop all around and impede my arm swing. First world problems.
8x800 w/ ~2:30 jog followed by 2x200 just to get the legs snapping.
800's: 3:00, 2:57, 2:57, 2:56, 2:55, 2:55, 2:54, 2:50
200's: 31, 31
Not a particularly difficult workout. Didn’t have to squeeze any reps. More focused on trying to keep things even and just under 6:00/mi pace.
I recently replaced my 45 with a Fenix 6 pro, and it was definitely worth it for me. The increased battery life is really welcome, but it also has a lot more customization available to fine tune it to your needs. The biggest reason I got this one though, was the fact that it also has the golf gps included, which is wonderful.So the watch bezel/face of my Garmin 45 popped off. I popped it back on and resealed it but don't know how long it may last. Seems like the lifespan of my electronics is right around 2 years for anything that I run with.
What are other people using these days? Coros is newer and seems to be a great deal at $199 for the PACE 2. Garmin has the newer Garmin 55 but the Coros seems to have better battery life which would be nice. The Fenix series would be fun but hard to convince my wife I need to spend $599 on a watch...
