Hill Repeats…aka Booty Burners

I REALLY need to start getting to bed earlier. It would make getting up at 5 a.m. so much easier. But summer…

I had hill repeats on the plan this morning. I did 30 second hills last week and did not feel like I got my HR up high enough. I’m sort of stuck in this in between area where I don’t want to push it too hard and irritate my bursitis but I’m ready for some harder stuff because I’ve got races coming up.

My treadmill is nifty because I can program workouts into it and don’t have to do math and push buttons. I really like not having to think and just having to speed up or slow down when it beeps at me. So…I decided that 5.0 grade hills at a 7.0mph pace (8:34…woah!) sounded like it would do the trick. I really hate when I’m right. I could totally feel my glutes firing. PT exercises are clearly doing their job.


I had a sweet reward for after my hill workout. Overnight oats! Are you surprised?! Of course not. Mr. Neon accused me of putting too much pineapple in it. Is that a thing? I don’t think so. Costco pineapple spears…I love you.


Mr. Neon and I will celebrate 11 years of marriage next weekend. And we just found a new way to spice up our marriage. Snapchat! Haha. We’ve started sending each other multiple snaps per day. It’s silly and fun! Old dogs can learn new tricks.


Some of the filters sure make me feel pretty!

Stay neon!
