The Last Hill Workout

Filed under: Uncategorized — by InterstellarLass @ 7:06 am

YAY! Done with Hill Work! Today was the last hill workout posted on our marathon training schedule. Next Thursday I leave for Colorado, so I’ll get in a few hills there, but no more hill repeats! After Colorado we start alternating Yasso’s with Mile-repeats on Thurdays. Once I figure out exactly what those are, I’m sure I’ll wish I were running hills instead.

But, despite despising hill workouts, I had a great workout today! We ran 11 repeats. I finished these in 44:50, for an average pace of 10:10. Yeah, but that’s all because I can really speed up on the down-hills. Gravity is on my side. 😉 I finally got smart and measured the distance I run. .2 miles uphill, then back down. So, each repeat is .4 miles total. 4.4 miles today. Plus I added on a little 5 minute cool-down. Whew! Now I’m stinky and need a shower!



  1. Lass, you’re like the army. You do more by 7 AM than I do all week 🙂

    Good luck. Keep it up!

  3. Happy no-more-hills day! I don’t know what elevation you’re training at, so you might feel it in Colorado. Hopefully, the lack of humidity will offset!

  6. Um, Dallas is at no elevation (well, officially 463 feet). I will definitely feel it in Colorado. 😀
