A break in the weather

Wow, what a beautiful morning today…64 degrees, 68% humidity…a girl could get used to this!!!

I had planned to do speed work yesterday but it just did not happen and I wasn’t ‘in the mood’ for it today either so I decided I would do some hill work again.  I picked a route that was a 1 mile loop and ran it three times.  There were a few small hills and one pretty steep hill that I wasn’t sure if I could repeat three times but I decided I’d give it a go.

The first time through didn’t feel too bad but I definitely had to walk after that steep hill.  I followed the same plan as last time, I could walk when needed just not on the hills.  When I picked up running again I tried to ‘hurry’ a little to keep my average down and it appears to have worked…on the first lap.

The second lap was a little slower since I took more walk breaks and by the final lap it was all I could do to get to the top of the hill without stopping – whew! I’m glad that’s over! LOL

I’m happy to see my overall pace was under 13 min/mile…that’s good considering the steep hill and all the walking!!

  1. Wow! You’re really embracing the hill work and, judging by the steepness of those climbs on your graph, it looks like you’re doing an amazing job. Go you! 🙂
