Then I get so concerned over quantity, I forget about quality. I started thinking to myself, 'When was my last good hill workout, or speed workout?'
*Blushing* I realized it's been a while. Today I had been feeling better than I had felt in about a month, SO sucking it up, I headed to a larger STEEPER hill than I usually do for repeats and went for it.
This is a pretty steep hill. And usually, I can rock out a hill pretty well, but this one gets me every time. So I ran up 75% of it, stopped for 5 DEEP breaths, and finished it. 5 times.
What I love about where this hill is located, is that it has a nice flat road below the hill. So I ened up doing 6x200 intervals, with 200 meter jogs in between. (the first 2 were walks)
1 km warm up
1 km cool down
I really need a 'schedule' and someone to tell me : YOU NEED TO RUN THIS (XX) TODAY.
