How Hard Are Hill Sprints?

I think I must've sustained a knock to the head at work today. For some reason I got the bright idea that hill sprints would be a good way to get maximum initial gain in the shortest possible time. I'm hoping it was a good idea but talk about tough. How could such a short session be so hard work? Ten 15 second sprints up the Longhope Hill. By the half way point in the session I had had enough but kept on for the full ten. My heart rate hit 185 during the last few reps. Fingers crossed it pays dividends...
