Saturday - Hill Sprints

No lifting on the weekends, but today I got in my final day of conditioning for the week. Due to a flat tire on my bike, I changed locations to a spot near my apartment. The hill is steeper than the previous location, though shorter, I think. I felt powerful! I was expecting the steeper incline to be more difficult. Maybe it felt easier because at this incline the running mechanics are more like a squat? Anyway, I did 10 sprints in 20 minutes and I didn't feel winded. I think I should have either done more or not rested as long. Edit: After viewing the video, the sprints were clearly too short (8-9 seconds).They should be about 60% longer. Plus, I can now see that I run like a bozo.
