This morning I had the pleasure of hitting some hills that were steep! After a decent warm up I settled on running Denny Dr. I am so terrible at estimating inclines but this hill is steep. This is my third week of hill repeats and I am starting to feel some strength being built. The repeats felt as good as hill repeats can feel. You know the feeling of burning quads, lungs and a heartbeat that feels like it is going to beat right out of your chest! Yep, that was how I felt. The repeats were 7 X 40 seconds uphill and a jog down, then repeat.
I finished with a nice warm down in the Hunters Park neighborhood.
