Workout 8-15

This week we’re doing hills.  Short fast no more than 2 minutes a piece.  We want to do them fast explosive, use your arms to drive up the hill.  Short strides, quick turnover.  If you’re gasping for breath by the end then you’re probably going too long.  This is intended to work your muscles more than your lungs.

This is a good strength workout.


Drills, we’ll do these together.

15-20 minute warm up

6-8 X 100 Strides

12-16 X 60-120 second hill repeats, we’ll switch up hills for some variety and do 4-5 on each one.  Jog slow back down for recovery.

10-15 minute warm down.

    I didn’t skip Ed’s hills Tuesday and twisted my ankle running at Lynn Woods last night, so I am out for tonight. Have fun and hope to be back next week.

    Oh bummer. I was planning to come but me and hill workouts don’t get along very well. I will run on my own tonight. Have a good one. I am on vacation next week so won’t be there next week either.
