Hill Sprints #1: 1/7/12
Had about 7-8 hours awesome sleep, been up for over 24 hours before I finally had time to sleep, and decided to do some Conditioning by trying out hill sprints.
(Drank a gatorade and then 1 serving Purple Wraath with 20oz water while I was stretching due to drinking some Jameson last night)
There’s a nice hill road near me so I just ran on the sidewalk and tortured myself.
Original plan was to at least try 10 uphill sprints but declined to 5 sprints after I realized how crap my endurance is at this time.
At least now I have a baseline to build up on!
Will eventually try to build myself up to do 10 sprints then 15 then 20.
Or at least beat my time.
The run kicked my ass and hopefully I will improve in time.
