Training — The Hills Are Alive October 29, 2009

Distance: 6.4 miles
Time: 50:40
Pace: 7:55 mile

Started the day with a two mile run through Brentwood and ended up at my current favorite hill to get in some incline work.


I don’t really like doing hill work, especially hill repeats. Part of the fun of running is seeing new things and feeling like you’re exploring. But the LA Roadrunners seem to think hills are an essential part of training, so I don’t mind throwing them in once a week.

I needed to do 40 minutes of hill work today, so I did 8 up-and-downs. The first couple are always difficult, but, as it is with my distance running, the last few hill repeats go a lot faster. I think it’s partially knowing I’m almost done, but I think it also helps when my muscles acclimate to the exercise.

Need to rest up—Saturday marks my first ever double digit run. 11 miles!
