Colossus — or Just Some Numbers

The run we did on Saturday was up a hill they call “Colossus.” I love the names. It is a big hill that winds up around the landfill up there. It is pretty steep and it goes on and on. We ran a set of sprints. First 15s to warm up, then 4 sets of 3 30-second sprints, then more of the 15 second sprints. I’ve gotten a lot stronger and am very happy to see certain numbers popping up, even if just for a few seconds. Growth is good! At the end are some segments from the long plummet downhill, in which I had opportunities to work on my downhill running, a bit of a challenge for me.

It was really a hell of a workout, and without my co-conspirators I very much doubt I would have cranked out this effort.
