It takes longer than 3 minutes to run a lap on the Blue Heron Bridge. According to the training plan I am using, I warmup for 1.5 miles then complete ten 3 minute surges over the hill. At the pace I use, 3 minutes gets me 80-85% over the hill. I jog to the bottom, … Continue reading The 3 minute bridge workouts

11mi. I had asked Lanae if she was interested in running the day after Christmas, being I had not done a morning run or ride on the 25th. She said she was doing a hill repeat workout with Sharon at 7:30am and I was welcome to join. Great. I didn't run the usual bridge workout … Continue reading Where things need to be
