Longer strides

So yesterday I went for a quick 5K workout.  First half has a significant slopeward down, which of course means the second half had a significant, butt killing (literally) uphill. 

However, the awesome part is that I tried to lengthen my strides.  It did require constant focus and it was incredibly difficult.  I mean, a lot more work on my heart and lungs.  I took a lot more walking breaks but overall I still think I was faster than usual because when I was jogging I was really moving.  I am going to keep this up for this week to get it more in my muscle memory and then next week work on some timed miles.

It went well and will continue to work.
