I really needed this workout today. It boosted my spirits more than I thought possible.
Today’s workout was hill intervals. The directions said to pick a hill I could run up at a steady pace. On my easy-pace runs, I cover about .3 miles in four minutes; I figured that would be enough for a four minute uphill run. It wasn’t! I was able to climb the hill in a little over two minutes. My pace going up that hill was around 12:00/mile. Geez!
Clearly, I need to quit sandbagging my workouts.
