I wish the hills worked for running as they do for riding-you go down as fast as you can and then you have it easier up the hill LOL
But somehow the gravity field works different for the wheels and different for the feet!!! LOL

I wish we had hills here. Hills make you stronger!
My hill work is done on a bridge. That's the biggest hill we got after a speed bump........

LOL - I have a rough time staying conversational and I go pretty slow! ;) Hopefully that will get better with time!

Good luck with your biopsy!

Oh, those hills! I run in a hilly area, too. I try to run as slow as possible. Jeff Galloway on his website gives an advice to stay "conversational" all through the training session, which means to be able to talk without too much huffing and puffing. This helped me a lot.
Anyway, I am going to repeat week 5, too. Tommorrow I have a biopsy and won't be able to run until the end of the week. So I'll just start back with another week 5. One more week of fun!

Well, I'm technically about half way through week 5, but yesterday morning was my first attempt at the week 5 routine (Walk 2 Min / Jog 3 Min * 6)... was trying to go longer between runs to give my shins a rest.

It wasn't my best performance. :( I may stay on week 5 for an additional week, there is no way at this point my heart rate will get down enough in 1 minute to keep jogging.

___

Warm-up: Walk 5 Min
Round 1: Walk 2.5 Min / Jog 2.5 Min
Round 2: Walk 3 Min / Jog 2 Min
Round 3: Walk 3.5 Min / Jog 1.5 Min
Round 4: Walk 4 Min / Jog 1 Min
Round 5 and 6: Walked

___

To my credit - darn hills kept impeding my progress ;)... on the up side, my shins didn't hurt very badly :)
