My favorite workouts...

It's not any one workout in particular, but it's any workout that feels like it keeps my furnace burning. Case in point, tonight's long hill repeats. The workout consisted of 4 nearly half mile hill repeats where I focused on my cadence, form and leg lifts instead of trying to get up the hill fast. My times for the repeats were 2:59, 3:06, 3:03 and 3:02.

After I got home, I devoured more than half a rotisserie chicken and two servings of brown rice and a handful of almonds, yet still feeling like I ate nothing. Almost five hours later, even though I should be asleep, my engine is still revving with that post workout burn. I don't always get this from my workouts, but I love it when it happens.
