|I went for a walk this morning. YES, a walk!|
This afternoon I left home around 5:30PM. The rain started around 3PM. So it was a wet run. I was planning to do some hill repetitions. My lack of hill training was evident during my last race. Because it was raining heavily I decided to do my hill reps close by. There is a very steep hill by my local high school. My intention was to do no more than five reps but I found out that this hill was a little short. So why not do ten reps? I ran hard up to the top and jogged down not concerned about time. It was difficult to keep a good form in the last 1/3 of the hill going up. By checking GoogleEarth I found out that the hill was 118.60 meters long and the elevation started at 10ft and ended at 100ft. After I finished the hill reps I did a cool down of about 15 minutes of easy running back home.
It was a good mileage week. No complains.
