The 9 Stages Of Hill Repeats
1st Hill Repeat.
"I'm going to eat these hills for breakfast!"
2nd Hill Repeat.
"This hill is my b*tch! This is going even better than I anticipated! I must be in great shape!"
3rd Hill Repeat.
"WOO! I FEEL ALIVE!"
4th Hill Repeat.
"F*ck this hill."
5th Hill Repeat.
"Am I dying? Can someone tell me if I'm dying?!?!"
6th Hill Repeat.
"NO MOREEEEEEEEEEE. NO MOREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE. WHY DO I DO THIS TO MYSELF?"
7th Hill Repeat.
"F*ck, f*ck, f*ck, f*ck, f*ck. OWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW! ENOUGH! When will this madness end!"
8th Hill Repeat.
"Alright, one more. You can do this. AGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH."
After You Finish.
" I AM AN OLYMPIAN! I AM THE GREATEST RUNNER TO EVERY GRACE THE EARTH! Jesus Christ, ow! My legs! OW! Alright...one more mile..."
I have a love hate relationship with hill repeats (And let's not forget that time I got in a fight with the hill in Prospect Park). They are seriously painful but oh so very necessary. To be honest, it's one of the most rewarding feeling being able to fly up a hill that once kicked your ass. Stick with them, they definitely make you a stronger runner. Until next time, #RunSelfieRepeat.
