Found a nice sun-baked section of dry path for my hill repeats today.  Really warm, nice sun - but the storm is coming.


WU: Nice and easy in zone 1-2 on snow trails.

MS: 9 X 40 sec moderate and strong hill repeats

CD: zone 1 to home

Training Tip:

When running hills, relaxed your upper body and allow your arms to swing in concert with your effort.  Your arms should work WITH your leg cadence and if you are too stiff and rigid in the upper body, you will lose flow and efficiency that the arm swing provides.  Focus on driving elbows back.
