Tonight was hill training. It was brutal. (This is the hill before winter hit. Just picture grayscale; dark/gloomy with very little Christmas lights…) Instead of doing it for endurance, tonights training was developed so that the runner keeps “race” speed the entire time. We all know that I don’t really have “race” speed, so I tried as best I could to keep my intervals under my usual hill training pace. I haven’t had time to look back and review, but I do think it is a little bit faster.
At any rate, training was as follows: one minute up hill at race pace, and one minute back down. Repeat x 10.
I should have prefaced this by saying that today is cheat day and I have eaten three pieces of fudge, two cookies, chicken strips and fries and two jujubes. So as you can see, I wasn’t kind to my body in terms of fuelling up properly, but hey, we only live once and if the world should end this week, I didn’t want to waste a cheat day!
I pumped my arms as fast as I could but I don’t think it did me any good. I had a belly full of junk. Maybe I should try the whole fasting before a workout?
