Oh my quads

I haven't done a good hill workout in a looong time. My usual weekend long run has some small and gentle hills on it, but it's essentially flat. So, yesterday I decided (on a semi-whim) to do 5 miles of hills. The lowest incline was .5 degrees (nothing, really, since I generally run with somewhere between .5 and 1.0 degrees to get a better gauge of pace), but the hill program kept shooting it up to 7.1 degrees!

And then I went home and mowed the lawn. This morning, my legs were stiff, really stiff. I skipped on running (so far), but I might do a quick 3-4 miles tonight, just to get the kinks worked out before tomorrow.
