7 miles easy w/ 4 hill (20-30 sec)
Originally, today’s run was 3x hill sprints (i.e. at 95% effort for 10 seconds each with walk down & rest). But they turned out more like hill runs than hill sprints . Why? No power.
When launched into the hill, I ran as hard as I could. But after 10 seconds I realized there was no explosiveness in my legs like if they were coming out of starting blocks. Instead, I extended the run just to give my legs a work out.
Don’t get me wrong, after four trips up the hill, my legs still got tired. And with 3.3 miles on the return, I was worried that I had to walk back. Luckily, that was not necessary. I will need to find a hill closer by, so I can try the explosive hill sprint again in the future runs.
How do you add power to your legs?
