Always a bit of a struggle getting out of bed to run hill intervals when it's dark and cold outside, but they say 'you never regret the workout you did.'


This morning I quickly built a workout on my iOS Movescount app, synced it to my Ambit 3 Vertical (all surprisingly easy and fast) and headed out the door.


I did a 10 minute warm up jog, threw in a couple of strides then 7 x 2 min hill intervals with equal work to rest periods. I'm trying to follow a bit of a reverse periodisation program as used by CTS for ultra runners. Essentially January to mid Feb will be about 'raising the aerobic ceiling' i.e. Maximizing my VO2. I felt surprisingly good given that this was my 3rd interval session this week. Pushed out 400 watts per interval.
