8 by TAIGA HILL. This hill ends by crossing over Aurora on a pedestrian bridge, which is flat. I try to surge across the bridge everytime. Today there were people holding political signs on the bridge that I sprinted by 8 times, they must have thought I was weird.
My preworkout plan was to cruise the first 6 reps and then hammer the final climb on the last two. Mostly worked out, but I started to get tired on #6.
Hill times in bold. I also included the rest which is just jogging the .25 miles or so down the hill, which will be interesting to track.
3:21.0!, 2:11.7, 3:13.2, 2:24.3, 3:11.8, 2:21.0, 3:11.4, 2:24.3, 3:12.6*, 2:23.2, 3:12.7^, 2:30.1, 3:09.5, 2:29.5, 3:06.4
!I actually expected to run in the 3:20s for most of them
*Near Collision with cyclist cost about 1 second right at the end.
^Legs starting to lose power
Course tool has this as equivalent to a flat kilometer, but that can't be correct (can it?). It's been a while since I've tried a fast effort not on dirt/gravel.
