It has become apparent to me over the course of the last month or so... that I have lost my hill stamina. Instead of bouncing up the hills along my regular routes, barely even noticing them... I have felt as though I were trudging up them, like I'd never ran a hill in my life.
So this morning... I decided to do a hill workout. It was a slightly less humid morning with a nice, brisk breeze, so I thought it would be perfect for a small hill workout. And it was.
But, the hill kicked my ass. And I only did 3 repeats! Instead of feeling like Rocky Balboa at the top of the hill for the last time.... I felt like I was going into cardiac arrest. It's good though. I need to get back into the groove of doing hill workouts and speed work, etc...
I gots lots of work to do, I tell ya.
