Hill workout

I was debating what to run last night.. The weather was perfect, around 55 and clear. I had an hour's worth of daylight to run in.

I opted for a portion of one of my favorite runs.. It starts out going uphill from our place, more or less slowly and gradually. There's some steeper spots, but nothing too crazy.

Here's an elevation chart of it:

The hill itself is 3.5 miles up, but I figured my calves weren't healed enough for that. So, I capped it at 2 miles up, yielding a 4 mile run.

It went fairly smoothly.. Just about a 10:00/mile pace on the way up, and a 9:00/mile pace on the way back. Nice and easy. Today, the calves are tight, but not painful.

Keep on rockin'...

Nice job! I usually see I hill and run the opposite direction.

Thanks! I'm trying to be better about it. This one at least is uphill to start, rather than ending on an uphill..

If you drank as much as I do, cutting back for a week will def make a difference. ha ha.
