Hill Running

Workout of the Day

20 minute AMRAP:

Lake Natoma Hill run for max climbs

Today's workout was as simple and raw as it gets.  Go find a hill and run it as many times as you can in 20 minutes.  Jason, Stef, and Corey were out there running with me, along with Larry, the trusty dalmation.  Luckily for our crew, the weather was beyond beautiful today and there wasn't anybody else on the trail to get in our way.

For a workout like this you have to know your goal.  It's meant to be low gear, constant movement, and grinding.  You should be at near max heart rate the entire time, constantly battling to maintain momentum.  Jason and I stayed with each other for the majority of the time, both finishing 7 rounds up the 100 meter hill.  I should mention for those out there who haven't seen any videos I've posted of this ass kicker that the grade on this hill is 20% or higher.  MONSTER.

Also got a chance to test out the GoPro while we were out there.  Amazing quality on that little guy, just not a lot of smooth footage on a run like this.  But now that I know it works I'm looking forward to using it a whole lot more in the future.  Could take this youtube workout game to a whole new level.

Below is a clip from that Mark Bell posted of our squat session this past Tuesday.  Enjoy.
