Yesterday I was introduced to a new type of training by my plan - hill work. My plan called for a 2 mile jog, then a 3x hill of about a quarter mile, followed by a 2 mile jog.
My Higdon plan said to not worry about the inclination of the hill - just choose something about the right length (quarter of a mile more or less). On my normal Upper Back Bay run there is a hill that is almost a quarter mile in length, so, off I went to try my workout.
I ended up at just under 5 miles total including the hill workout. I did 20 minutes of stretching to work out some of the soreness. It is amazing how hard I am having to work after my injury layoff.
Today is a three mile easy run and a weight workout. Talk to you afterwards!
