Hill workout

Miles: 3
Pace 10:00
Total miles for the day: 3.5

Today I went with the plan to change things up a bit, and I ran a long, continuous hill instead of short repeats. After the warmup, I jogged 1.5 miles downhill in 15 mintues. Then I turned around and ran back. The main hill was probably as steep as the one I do the repeats on, and a little more than three-quarters of a mile in length. At the top were a few rolling hills, which leveled off a bit until the repeats hill at the end. I finished that second half of the run in 14:54, which surprised me. I expected the uphill part to have been slower than the downhill! I finished it all with a sprint up the driveway, which has a very mild up-hill slope. All in all, it's been a good day. :-)
