6 miles including 6 x hill sprints (10 sec) w/walk down rest & 2 min rest
Today’s hill sprints was much improved as compared to last Monday. I felt my legs’ explosive drives up the hill, engaging my short twitch muscles. As a distance runner, I seldom fire up those muscles. So this was a good cross training.
Another benefit of the hill sprints was the opportunity to improve my running form. I ran as fast as I could without worrying about over-striding. Nevertheless, not wanting to over-do-it, I stopped after 6 sprints.
Even though the hill was about a mile from my house and my legs on the return trip felt only slightly tired, I sensed that I will sleep well tonight. And the true test will be tomorrow morning after I wake up.
When is enough enough?
