Hello and Happy Day to you!
How are you today?
I, personally, am great… although my legs feel a little tired today.
I did hill repeats yesterday for the first time.
Man! It was HARD!
See what I did there?
I made a funny.
Anyway, as I mentioned a few months back,
I reeeeeeeeeally need(ed) to get better at running hills.
But, thanks to my most recent running injury,
Hill training was put on the back burner for my last couple races…
And caused me to be completely unprepared for the SF Half.
Which explains why the race nearly KILLED me and was by far the hardest Half Marathon I have ever done.
Hoping to prevent another near death experience, I have added hill repeats to my training.
Last night was the start of my new regimen and boy was it rough!
My legs are sore.
Like actually sore, from a 3 mile run (3 1/2 mile hill repeats).
When the heck does that happen??
Which means that I am doing something right, right?!?!
My goal is to work my way up to 6 miles (6 1/2 mile hill repeats).
I can doooooooo it!
