Hill Sprints Are The Devil's Doing...

On such a lovely evening as tonight there was no way I could run treadmill intervals indoors. I decided on a set of hill sprints. I've not run a set for ages - and I remember why... (That and the fact I've been a lazy sod for the last few years).

You wouldn't think a set of eight 30s reps of approximately 145 metres could hurt so much. My legs were almost giving way from under me towards the end of the last two reps. You might wonder at a mere 240s of effort but the book said not to over do-it when starting out. Good session. Finished off with a 30 minute warm down on the bike.
