Today’s hard workout involved a 20min warmup bike ride over to the steepest hill in the area, followed by hill sprints. 10x30seconds maximum heart rate sprints uphill with 90 seconds recovery jog between each rep. After that, a slow 25min bike ride home.
Less than fun.
The good news is that my recovery time is improving – it only took about a minute or so for my heart rate to drop a few zones.
The bad news is that my legs are heavy and slow and I’m still carrying a bit too much weight.
This better pay off because I feel like I’ve been hit by a truck.
