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!!
