Low mileage this week but gonna work on that this week. Tuesday morning Sarah and I had planned on doing hill repeats, for the first time ever! I got to town realized I forgot my Garmin text Sarah she didn't respond so I figured she wasn't coming and I took off running. I used the Map my Run app on my phone to measure the distance but wasn't sure on how accurate it was so I also ran a route that I knew what the distance was. Then Sarah text while I was out that she had overslept and was on her way, she picked me up and we headed for a hill. We have decided to try doing some different things in training like the hill repeats and track workouts so I'm anxious to see how and if it helps. We did 6xhill repeats, at first I thought it wasn't so bad but by the time the 5th one came I could tell it was definitely a work out and I could REALLY tell it at aerobics later that night and the next morning! Wednesday I ran with the Hubz which you can read all about HERE! Thursday morning I got up to run but was feeling a little worn out so I decided to take the extra couple of hours of sleep instead:) and just went to aerobics after work.
Then came Saturday Race Day! Another "Serres" race. Also as I stated HERE this is a race I REALLY wanted to do well in as I have never placed in even though I had an awesome PR at last year! Friday night I wasn't really feeling it and Saturday morning wasn't much better but in my mind all I could think was "Run FAST Bobbie!"
|Sarah & I at the start!|
|Me & Kelly I told Mom she was making me run fast!|
I have a question about the Hill Repeats, What is the proper way to do them? Should you sprint the hills or just run them up and down?
Hope everyone had an awesome week!
