I completed this workout solo - there were no mutts with me today. I also edited my workout - my warm-up was shortened, I did 8 instead of 12 repeats, and I shortened my cool-down. I justify this by saying that I did 8 very solid repeats; in fact, the last few were actually faster than my first few repeats - how about them apples? :) And this workout was an improvement over my hill workout two weeks ago under similar circumstances (the day after an 11.5K run). I was very pleased with what I accomplished, but also felt that I had done enough.
But I can say that today while typing this up (the day after), it was clearly a killer workout because my hip flexors are stiff! I am waddling around like an old penguin lady - oy! I am not sure what I did but I am clearly feeling this workout more today than I ever have previously experienced. :( I didn't go to yoga last night so this might have had something to do with it, and I didn't warm-up for as long as I always do so this could be the problem, too. Whatever I did or didn't do, I am paying for it! Thankfully, it is clearly not an injury; just stiffness from overdoing it.
And woo hoo again! My last hill workout. I won't have to do these again until the new year during my next round of half marathon training, and I am just not nutty enough to throw them in for fun anytime soon. :) I'll stick to running hills that are on the path I have chosen until 2012. Hold me to it! :)
