YAHOO! Finished hills today – thank goodness. Wasn’t sure if I would be able to make it through hills today as I went to bed last night not feeling fantastic and of course, woke up this morning with a scratchy throat and stuffed up nose. And let’s face it 5 x 500 m UPHILL and 5 x 500 m DOWNHILL is exhausting at the best of times, let alone when you’re under the weather! But we got up, had our usual pre-run breakfast + coffee and jumped in the truck to find the perfect 500 m hill within the city (a more challenging task than it may seem). So after about 20 minutes of driving me and Felix found the perfect spot.
The first three times I ran the hill felt pretty good, but I’ll admit the last two near killed me. My lungs were burning, nose was stuffed, face was as red as a tomato and I was ready to quit. There was one point I was pushing the stroller as far ahead of me up the hill as I could and cursing it simultaneously. It was tough going with a stroller, but we did it! However, silly me forgot to put in the correct number of intervals so I have two sets of results.
Here are the stats from hills:
