Today I had some fun running hill repeats. The hill is on E. 40th Street off the North Marginal. It rises 60 feet in .10 of a mile for a 6 percent grade.
I began the workout with a 1.5 mile easy run from work to the top of the hill. At the top of the hill I turned around and ran down backwards. At the bottom I sprinted back to the top. I repeated this sprinting up and backward jogging for a total of 9 sets. I could feel my calf muscles getting tight after 6 or 7 repeats. I do hope the calves aren't too sore for tomorrows bike workout.
