The Hills

Oooh hills.  Man, they get me every time.  Is it the same for you?  I've been attempting them lately.  And after my last workout, I got home and  flipped my Runner's World calendar over to May and look what I read:
Workout:  Run for 1 minute uphill, rest for 30 seconds at the top, run down the hill at a faster than average pace, and rest for 2 minutes at the bottom.  Repeat four times.
Variations:  Try to go farther in one minute, or try to get up the hill faster.  In inclement weather, run up stairs.
Benefits: Increased speed, strength, and running economy.

Que lindo es sonar despierto.
How lovely it is to dream while you are awake.
