Apparently the AtB course includes a bunch of rolling hills and a big hill all in the last 7-10km. So I’m training hills, lots of hills.
- Find a hill- check. Longwood hill: 500m long, ~5%grade. Bedoe hill: stupid long and stupid steep.
- Run repeats.
- Run more repeats than last week.
So far so good. 5x, 6x, and 7x Longwood hill in the books after todays 7x run. The plan I drew up for myself has me moving on to Bedoe hills next week. We’ll see about that.
I average 2:10-2:15/rep. up Longwood. Didn’t have the watch today so I can’t say for sure, but I’ve run this hill enough to know what 2:10 effort feels like, and this was it. I was dogging it on the recovery back down. Compare last week’s 6x run overall stats below. I probably could have pushed harder, my legs were gassing more than anything else. Im going to take that to mean it was a good up-speed workout.
Nutrition: Same. Dont fix what aint broke.
Gym: Legs (?!) tomorrow. Im kidding. Im not anywhere close to beat up enough to skip leg days. Im fresh.
