I’m lazy. Given my druthers, I’ll just cruise along. I can go a long way, but I like to do it slowly.
As someone said to me last year, though, if you do only slow training runs, all you’ll ever be is a slow runner. I like to do races as well as train, and a race calls for at least an attempt at going quickly. So sometimes I need to incorporate hills as part of my training.
The Tannenbaum 10K is only a couple of weeks away, and I’d like to acquit myself with honour at the event. So this morning, and once a week for the next two weeks, hill repeats are my baby. Once I get going with them, they’re really not so bad. In fact, I quite like them.
Once the Tannenbaum is done and gone, I’ll go back to being a lazy runner – until, of course, it’s time to train for my next race.
