Hill Reps

A small start at getting me back to some sort of running form.

10 Reps of the Cowper St hill. Only 200metres up but better than nothing.
Each rep was between 50-55 seconds with recovery back down between 60-70 seconds.

Only 10 reps but they felt fine on the legs. Especially since the surface is a concrete footpath.

Hey, have you ever tried High St or Wansey St. I think they are pretty tough. There's also a mean Hill over at UNSW on Barker St, Kingsford.

After reading this I'm gonna throw some hill reps into my otherwise lazy run.

Thanks for the inspiration. I'm thanking you now cos I know I'll be cursing you later.

Take it easy, SF...there's no chance your hill repeats will get you past me on Heartbreak Hill!!

Do plenty of stretching Soapflake.

I want to choreograph some high kicks into your cheer-squad routine later in the week.
