Great Start

I had a great workout to start the day today. I was already in a much better mood because I actually Slept last night! What a relief. I coughed viciously when I first went to bed but somehow I did in fact sleep.
The workout:
60" run with 10 x 1 " Hills in the middle. It went like this: 25" run to warm up. The first 5 hills were at 6.5% incline at 7:47/mi pace. 1" EZ between The last 5 were at 7.5% incline with a 7:41 pace. 15" run after to stretch out the legs.
My legs were burning. I've done this workout or some variation of it many times and I really feel it helps. When I ran the Midwinter Classic earlier in the month, the hills felt effortless. I do a hill workout like this almost every week.
Today is already a better day. My body is alive. I love starting the day with a workout. It makes me feel energetic and ready to go. The sun is shining and it's beautiful.

Glad it is a pink day and glad you had a fab. workout!
That hill workout sounds deliciously hard. I'm slogging along in zone 1, hoping someday I'll get to run fast again!
