9.27 mi, 1:24:15, 9:05 avg, elev gain 343 feet
Today was hill day. 8x400m uphill @10k pace, 45 second jog at the top, back down @7:30 pace, 1:30 jog, then repeat. Warmed up with 2 miles easy. Ran the same hill as last time which is just over 400m so I stop just a little bit short, climb is about 36 feet. Start on the corner of Lakeview Drive and Village Way and take a left onto Sandy Hook Rd. I could just go straight on Lakeview Drive but there's a few more cars and an extra speed hump to navigate over and a little less shade.
I was dreading the challenge of this workout, but I think it's paying off little by little. Made it up the hill ok each time and had fun on the downhills. After the 5th repeat I refreshed my water bottle with cold water from the clubhouse water fountain so it may have been a little more than 1:30 for the break.
Uphill paces were: 6:43, 6:46, 6:41, 6:39, 6:39, 6:31, 6:38, 6:26
Downhills ranged between 7:04 and 7:33 (the 7:04 followed the 6:26 uphill).
Finished off with 2 mile easy pace warm down.
