Up like a bird

The humpday workout involved hill repeats, and I decided to run up a new hill, Paloma.

The hill was the perfect length and definitely steep enough to wear out my quads by the last couple repeats! It was a bit warmer that I'd expected, but I didn't notice much when I was pushing the hill repeats.

I used my arms like wings to work myself up the hill. I took advantage of the 2 minute recovery jogs to drink water and hopefully work some lactic acid out of my muscles. I was aware that I was huffing and puffing on the last uphill.

Painful, but good stuff, right?!
