Hill training! The very words filled me with thoughts of running exhausted for hours on end up a hill. However, in reality this session was quite satisfying.
Firstly I did some warm up stretches, a fast walk and then jog over to Cryfield. Next to the sports pavilion there is a long uphill stretch of drive there which seemed ideal for the task.
The idea was to run as fast as you can up the incline for 30 seconds then jog back down and around the track at the base of the incline for 2min 30sec. By repeating this 10 times, you get a good uphill workout (which is what I really need in prep. for Edinburgh!)
After the session I jogged back to Claycroft and warmed down with some stretching for 10 mins.
Anyway, I can now get on with my work feeling very smug that I've stretched myself this morning.
