Deads + Hills

August 2, 2010

On Friday, I shared some thoughts on hills – specifically how to know how many you need to do each time.

Today, I start running my hills, cognizant of the recommendation I gave regarding spontaneous-hands-on-hips that happens 100% of the time one runs hills.  So the entire time I’m running them, I’m thinking, “I am NOT going to let my hands do the hips thing, because I want to do a ton of these today.”  I get through 6, and I’m feeling pretty good.  Breathing a bit heavy, but nothing major.

This WILL happen to you. When? That, I cannot answer...

I run #7, and as I’m coming down the hill, Son of a Vondruke if my hands didn’t appear spontaneously on my hips.  I couldn’t believe it.  I felt like I got caught with my hand in the cookie jar.  I am nothing if not a man of my word, so I ran two more (well, actually 3, I have rep number OCD and had to even it out) and went home.
