HR urban trail + hill sprints - 9:00 A.M.
60s, clear, dry
mind/body - feeling good
Today was a much needed confirmation run. Confirmation that I am back on track. Last time I did these hill sprints before ZG I suffered mightily (gombu) barely hitting a 1:07 avg. Much different story today! I had a casual run to and from the hill with a 7:03 pace intermixing short sprints to get the lungs working. Once on the hill (350 meters - 10% grade), feeling good, I decided to make each one progressively faster: 1:06:47, 1:05:57, 1:05:46, 1:04:05, 1:03:55, 1:01:80. A few seconds doesn't seem like a big deal but when you're at the red line each time, it's a pretty big deal.
