Last week I did some Hill reps with my team on Friday morning. This week, Friday was not going to work. We were scheduled to run to Jamba Juice Friday (today.) So, Thursday I met Clay to run up some hills with him. This is the same workout we did a year or more ago. Looking back in my blog I found this post, which was probably the last time I ran this workout..
Some interesting comparisons:
|55th West L8 to M||4:08||3:56||3:51|
|55th West M to M8||3:57||4:02||4:19||3:57|
|Manzanita Ave r1||3:20||3:38||3:36||3:23|
|Manzanita Ave r2||3:26||3:20|
|Manzanita Up r1||3:32||3:41|
|Manzanita Up r2||3:32|
It turns out, last time I was doing this workout, was October 2010! October 2010 was when I was on the top of my game! That is when I ran the 10 miler in Huntington Beach in 1:08:14. October 2010 was right before I ran a half marathon in 1:31:27! This would be meaningful only if I were now capable of doing the workout as quick as I had then. The 4:02 on the big 55th west hill is only a few seconds off of the PR. And I was not really trying to run a PR on it. I was also already a bit sore from the workout the evening before. ….
