Hill running, walking, and dry heaving
Went and did some conditioning work today. Found a sweet hill about 35 minutes from the house that is an ass kicker. I use the term "found" lightly, as I have been driving past it for months now, but figured today was the perfect time to start running it. Because.
The hill is only about 30-35 yards long, but it at a 45 degree incline. Pretty steep. To make the run a bit longer, I started from the tree that's in the middle of the picture here.
Did 10 trips total. 3 walking, then ran 4, then walked 3 more. Only the running ones count, but the walking before and after will help improve the ones in the middle. When I was walking it, I simply walked up, turned around, and walked back down, rested about 30 seconds, and did it again. When running it, rest at the bottom was a minute and a half or two minutes. Enough for the lactic acid to leave.
After the running, I walked around aimlessly at the bottom of the hill for 10-15 minutes, waiting for the dry heaves to become productive, or go away. They went away. Probably a good thing I hadn't eaten yet.
Going to start with this 1x per week, and increase it as I see fit. I want to run fast, but Im really out of shape, and, like getting strong, you cant really rush it.
