Today's hill workout went rather well. My usual running buddy Rich was busy packing his gear for his 150 mile Atacama desert crossing in Chile; what a slacker! However, I was able to get my workout done anyway. The temps were in the low 40s with the wind chill. I did the usual one mile warm up and cool down before and after the hills sprints. All together, it added up to about 5.5 miles for the day. I was significantly faster today than I was during my last hill workout. On average, I shaved about 30 seconds off my per mile pace during the uphills. I also took about 5 to 10 seconds less per uphill sprint. My heart rate never went above 180 during the sprints and I was able to get it down to 140 on the recovery jogs. Tomorrow morning, I will be meeting Rich for one last run before his departure to Chile. The weather man says it will be 30 degrees in the morning. I am so ready for warmer weather.
