I forgot to do a Workout Wednesday yesterday, so I decided to do an alliterative workout post for Thursday.
Don’t worry Thursday Thunder is not becoming a thing. Also, forgive me if this post is a little jumbled, my brain is still getting itself back together after doing the workout outlined below.
As I’ve written before, San Francisco is full of hills (duh), which make the perfect DIY cardio machine.
In attempt to rebuild a little little cardiovascular fitness (read more about that here), I decided to do some hill work.
I am literally SURROUNDED by hills, I just had to pick one to sprint up and down multiple times. Competitor.com says to pick a 7-10% grade for all out short efforts, but the SF hills near me didn’t feel like cooperating so I picked this one…
and this one-
As I said, I’m surrounded by really steep hills. Make sure the hills are about .10 miles.
So with the .1 mile-long hills picked, here’s the workout:
Easy, peasy on paper, but if you go all out on these, you should really be feeling it.
You can either do five repeats at steeper grade and a less steep grade (like me!) or do all of your repeats at a 7-10% grade.
Extra points if you listen to the song below while while doing this workout-
Ha. Get it? It rhymes.
