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.

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!
