Beginneth the hill phase. My particular weak point. Did a 4.4 mile warmup, some strides, then met Eric for some hills. We did a short hill / loop over and over. At first we did bounding which didn’t feel that hard but I had trouble keeping proper form. Then after some sorbet striders to cleanse the legs, we did some traditional climbs which certainly felt hard. Some more striders followed and we were spent. Another 5 miles to cooldown and I’m guessing the mileage was around 12.85 based on time. Two hours total.
Wouldn’t want to do that everyday.
