Today’s plan says “4-5 Hills (200 yds), 5K-10K pace.” Remember, I’m a beginner, I don’t have a clue how fast my “5K-10K pace” should be, and I HATE hills. Actually, hills aren’t actually hills – they are a primitive form of torture. With that said I put my brain to work and tried to figure out how fast I am supposed to run based on my long-run pace (more on pace another day). I calculated, planned, and even found a hill. However, things don’t always go to plan but at least I’m done with hills for another week.
- .7 mile warm up
- 4x 200 yds at 10K pace, 4% grade (according to mapmyrun.com) with 3 min cool between repeats
- 1 mile cool down
Weekly total: 2.2 miles
