Hill Work On a Treadmill = boring

Between the events of today and the nasty weather, it took every ounce of motivation to get my butt in gear for my hill workout.  I compromised and decided to do a hill session on the treadmill.  It was a great workout but nothing beats going to "the hill" in Allen.

1 Mile Warm Up

Workout: The Pyramid
Set 1: steady pace 1 minute each @ 4, 5 and 6 percent incline
2-3 minutes recovery @ flat jog


Set 2: steady pace 1 minute each @ 5, 6 and 7 percent incline
2-3 minutes recovery @ flat jog


Set 3: steady pace 1 minute each @ 6, 7 and 8 percent incline
2-3 minutes recovery @ flat jog


Set 4: steady pace 1 minute each @ 7, 6 and 5 percent incline
2-3 minutes recovery @ flat jog


Set 5: steady pace 1 minute each @ 6, 5 and 4 percent incline
2-3 minutes recovery @ flat jog


1 Mile Cool-Down followed by stretching and ice.

Better than nothing I suppose.
