Manual Hill Training

January 11, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

A lot of people dislike running on the treadmill. Personally, I don’t mind. Yes, I prefer to run outside, but living in New York City, it’s hard to find accessible, hilly terrain (aside from Central Park). Plus, I personally hate running in the cold. Which is where the treadmill comes in. Today I started doing manual hill training. I ran for 30 minutes at a minimum incline of 1 and a max of 6. I ran at 4 incline for 6 minutes and quickly followed that by 2 minutes of 6 incline. It was very intense and I think I did a good job of disciplining myself. That is, I only lowered back to 1 when I really couldn’t keep up. All of this is part of my New York City Marathon 2011 training. I’m psyching myself up to run it. Bring it!

PS: I did my pull up routine today as well. One set. Held my weight above the bar for 10 solid seconds. Will repeat again tomorrow.
