Hill run

If you've been following my training regiman, you know that Thursdays are now reserved for speed work, fartleks, hill runs and anything else that I can find to do to hurt myself. I am living proof that pain can be fun!

Another nice evening for a run. It was in the high 30s, no breeze. Ran in long sleeve performance shirt, shorts, coolmax gloves and earband.

1 1/2 mile warm up.
5 hill repeats (2/10 of a mile x 5)
1 1/2 mile cool down.

I have been running fartleks the last few weeks, so I started my hill running easy. I'll start picking up the speed and reps over the next few weeks. I will still throw in some Yasso 800s and fartleks on Thursdays. I am not sure what the most valuable of the three would be. If you have any advice, please let me know.

Partyrunner . . .
thanks for the confidence in my breaking four.

I'm not sure what's up with my fellow southerners. I'm trying to get my running buddies to start blogging. I guess on a whole, we're a private bunch. However, the running community down here is strong and social. Doesn't make sense to me why we don't blog more.

I hope you feel free to come back and visit anytime and let your friends know that there are a few friendly southerners out here!
