A college in the Bay Area... I'd rather not say.

Fair enough. It makes more sense that a college runner did that workout.

Hill repeats in 100 degree heat.
Pace- death
Recovery- not long enough
# of reps- I think 10 but I started to black out around #8
Hardest part- jogging the cool down. All I wanted to do was cry.
Best Part- post workout jamba

3-4x 2mi Hilly Repeats (~200ft elevation gain on each) at Threshold pace w/ 1-2min rest between each

^ did you do 3 or 4? So you hold threshold pace climbing 2000 ft. or was it threshold effort.

^Most people did 3 (as I did), but others did 4. And they were about 200ft not 2000ft of elevation gain per interval. And threshold effort, which in this case was still pretty close to threshold pace for 2 miles

This may have been one of my best workouts/toughest workouts of the year... straight from my log...

1 lap warmup, 2 laps striding the straights, moderate run (all that = 3 miles), then 5 x 1200m (1 lap on a dirt track to an 800 loop all dirt w/ a good size hill, measured out to be 0.73 miles) w/ 1:20-1:30 rest (never more than 1:30) in 3:49, 3:42, 3:36, 3:35, 3:32, then 1 mile easy cooldown. Felt solid and happy with my times, excited for CCS. 7.5 miles total.

Not in my log but that was all in trainers too.
