Running Hill Repeats!

Can you tell I am breathing hard?

Can you tell I am breathing hard?

Today I renewed my love for hill repeats. Perhaps I am a masochist but I have always LOVED running hills. People have always thought that I am nuts. I haven’t done any specific hill workouts in a long time but it felt amazing.

I picked a pretty steep hill, the sun was setting the trees on fire with a golden glow and it was actually pretty warm out. Just getting outside improved my energy level. The endorphins from this workout were just what I needed!

Do you like to run hills as a part of your training? 

Here is my vlog recap of today’s workout:

My workout today was designed by my awesome coach Denise Goode at The Sustainable Athlete. The Sustainable Athlete is a fantastic endurance coaching program started by an amazing friend of mine who amongst other things is an Ironman.  If you are in need of some coaching to help you meet your goals you should definitely check it out. My coach Denise has helped me to build my strength, speed, and endurance which played a crucial role in my qualification for the 2013 Boston Marathon

  1. I have small hills on my property (I live on 20 acres) and I love running them. I feel so much stronger! But….I am a beginner. So I can’t sprint or run very fast up them. But I still enjoy the challenge.

    Thank you for the inspiration! I want to get back out there!

    1. Thanks for stopping by my blog Annie. Good for you for doing those hills. The more you do them the stronger you will get. Keep up the good work and have fun running this weekend!

  2. Nice workout! My run yesterday actually turned into a progressive hill climb on the treadmill. I gotta add more hills. I hate ’em but they WORK!

    1. Do you have any good hill runs near you? It is almost harder to find flats to run on around here. I hate doing treadmill “hill” climbs. Happy running Angela!

    1. I think that’s the case for most people. It’s definitely a love hate relationship. Plus if you eat too close to a hill workout the end result is never a good one! Thanks for reading Nancy!

  3. I kind of love running hills too. It’s satisfying in a masochistic way 🙂 I keep reminding myself that they are making me stronger.
    Voted for you too!
