“false flat”

The workout rotation called for intervals and after talking to Bill, it was decided that the gradual uphill was the flavor of the day.  After mentioning it to Lawyer, he referred to it as a measly “false flat”, but after 6 of them it became quite the hill.  We had probably the largest group we’ve ever had with us for a Tuesday workout at around 15 runners.  It was great to see so many people show up for the workout and hills didn’t disappoint.  The group impressively stayed together for the most part (unless you count Lawyer and Owens off the front).  I went through the first quarter in 78 seconds and I thought for sure that I would fade badly.  Surprisingly, nobody really faded at all.  It was a difficult workout, but one that was doable and felt good to have run it.  My times for the six were 78, 78, 79, 77, 76, 77.  I was glad to have Burns there to keep from going backwards.  Awesome workout.  My legs on Sunday were still tired from the effort.

Next up?  A rainy two miler.
