Sixty Second Hills

Time: 88:00
Distance: 13.5 mi.

Target: 12 x ~300m hill (actually probably 290m), 4 comfortable / 4 hard / 4 harder
Workout: 65.2, 66.0, 62.1, 62.6 (avg: 64.0); 60.6, 61.1, 61.6, 58.3 (avg: 60.4); 59.4, 58.6, 57.4, 56.2 (avg: 57.9); rest between 75 and 90 seconds running down

First time I've gotten out for a hill workout in this training cycle, and it felt pretty good. I started from Puffer's Pond and ran up past the starting point for the hills so that I could get in a 25 minute warmup. The hill, starting at Market Hill and going up the first section of Flat Hills Road isn't too steep, but is a steady grade until the top where I went up and over. I finished with 35 minutes easy back to the car.
