Good Morning All,
This morning I thought I would do a longish run, but instead Katie and I did a short warmup on a desert trail then we did hill repeats. Hillwork is a staple for runners. I actually enjoy running up hills only to walk back down them. For one thing, I can run more easily on the slope, and I get to take a break on each downhill. The other thing is that the intensity is higher so the time on my feet is shorter. With my balance issues, and toe drag, being standing upright is not what it used to be.
All in all we did a mile and a half this morning. I got my heart rate to near max several times on the hills. So, a good workout!
