Will's Hills 18 - 6x4 minutes of hills

Warm Up, 6x4 minutes of hills with 1:45 rest and warm down, max HR = 176.

I took this one kinda easy since the legs were a bit tired from last night's run and lack of sleep. It was NOT easy to get up this morning, but it helped knowing it was Friday.

I saw Brett Riley there today. He's an infrequent participant in Will's Hills, and is a stellar runner. I don't think I mentioned this before, but Brett emailed me a few weeks back and asked if I was available for his Beach to Bay Marathon Relay team. I declined since that was my weekend in Ogden for the marathon, but I was certainly flattered to be asked by one of the fastest runners in Houston. That being said, I'm fully aware that he asked everyone he knew and was scraping the bottom of the barrell (me) to field a team, but it was an honor to be asked. His team finished sixth in the open Men's division in 2:24:52, for a 5:32 average mile pace. Each leg averaged 4.4 miles. So you can see that I would have really dragged the team down if Brett was unlucky enough for me to accept. My best pace over that distance would be about 6:05.

TDLY - 5/30/07 - No Motionbased info because this was a treadmill run to keep out of the lightening and get an idea about what pace I should run the 2007 Houston Heights 5k. Blog Entry.
