8/10, Hills

One week ago I said I didn't think doing hills on a treadmill was a good idea (see here). Well, due to a conflict I had to run on a treadmill this morning. I didn't push as hard as I would have outside and my breaks between the hills were pretty slow, but I finished.

Today's plan says "3-4 Long Hills (500 yds)at 5K-10K pace." I took this to be about a quarter of a mile so I did some repeats after a short warm up. I ran .25 mile at a 10 minute mile and 4% incline followed by .25 mile at a 16 minute mile and 1% incline; repeat four times. Running on the treadmill served its purpose for today.
