Hill Repeats

5.1 miles, 57:18 moving time. But really it was about hill repeats, not about the total distance or total time.

I met up with Lynda and Steve this morning. Crisp LA morning (45°F). We warmed up for about a 1.7 miles to get to the hill. Steve got to tell us all about his French Riviera marathon in Cannes and Nice. Great stories. Rain. and just a hair over 4:00 hr.

The hill is an ashpalt section of Washington Blvd, from Arroyo to RoseMont, closed to car traffic. We did 5 hill repeat up. Gasp, Wheeze! Then we walked down. repeat.

1:30, 1:22, 1:29, 1:22, 1:11

I got the negative splits on the last two!

Arm pumping. Metronomes. Pacing. All out effort on the uphill.
