Back at 'er
Fun's over, back to training.. no rest for the wicked. I started hill training this evening and Jacques was kind enough to join me. We met at 6 PM, got caught up a bit, and then headed to Garbage Hill at a slow pace. We did 4 reps at a pretty good pace. I didn't have my HR monitor but the ticker was definitely working hard. I was also sucking air and I got a sharp stitch on the last rep. Man, I thought I was in pretty good shape, but apparently not. Hill training builds strength and endurance, but man, it's a hard work out. Jacques and I have decided to get together at least once a week for a run. Consider this an invitation to join us. Drop me a line if you're interested in joining us. I run every day except Monday and Friday so there's lots of options.
