RODs WOD 21/1/12

 Most people never run far enough on their first wind to find out they've got a second.
~William James

Inspired by Anke who is sand dune running in harsh wind and sand storms in the dessert as I type this, we are going to try and spur her on by doing the same today!

Find yourself some hills - anything will do, don't aim for the South downs if you're a beginner though and don't opt out for a riverbank if you're a marathon runner!  As a guide, the hill has to be mildly challenging for you to walk up.  Aim for a minimum of 20 meters.

Now 15 minutes brisk walk, jog to warm yourself up, loosen up your hamstrings with a nice hamstring stretch - (toe touching will do) - and off we go.

Facing at a diagonal to the hill, jog up and immediately sprint down. - Repeat this 5 times.
1 minute rest and repeat for 5 sets

That's 25 sprints in total.
