"Hill repeats" was the name of the game this morning as I arrived at Richard's house and met up with Rich and James. We hadn't done hill repeats in forever, so I decided to do 10 repeats before increasing to 12 next week and 14 the week after. The temperatures were already above 60 degrees again, indicating another hot day. This was day 3 of my new training regimen and it felt good to have some consistency back in the training schedule.

We left Rich's house at 5:30AM and ran to the bottom of the Cotton Row hill, which gave us a little over a mile warmup. Then, it was time to attack puke hill. I tried to focus on keeping it steady. I wanted to avoid blowing up the first time back on this hill, so I pushed, but not too hard. I even increased my pace over the final 5 repeats. James pretty much did the same workout while Richard backed off a little due to his continuing battle with severe allergies. When it was all said and done, I had to admit that I actually enjoyed it a little. I used to hate hill repeats, but doing it with a couple of running buddies makes it quite enjoyable.
