Pretty tough workout on tap for today. Wasn't feeling particularly energetic so that made it a bit more tough. But, I got it done, and all in all not bad.
I ran 4.2 miles of gradual climbing up to a ridge from my house. On the other side of the ridge the road drops off rather steeply, and I ran a session of eight hill repeats there. Each sprint uphill was about 2/10's of a mile long and climbed 90 feet, depending on which graph you look at... the one below has a shorter elevation change. Regardless, pretty tough.
Afterwards, I ran the same way back home, thankful it was mostly downhill on the way back. Now time for a nap (hey, I'm on vacation).
Ran 12.1 miles @ 8:05/mile pace (includes 8 X .2 mile hill repeats)
AHR/MHR - 146/170
Upper 20s to mid 30s, sunny.
Saucony Kinvara, long pants, windbreaker, short sleeved shirt, beanie, gloves (shed during repeats).
