Hills, Hills, Hills

Instead of our typical midweek mileage, we did hills today. There are not a lot of hills in Central Ohio, so we have to work hard just to find one for hill training. But by Griggs Reservoir, if you head toward the Frisbee Golf course, there is a steep incline and a steep decline toward the course. In this part of Ohio these steep inclines pass for hills.

We walked half a mile to the "hill". We then went up the incline and down the other side, then turned around to go back up the steeper incline and down to where we started. We did 6 repeats! Unfortunately, we then had to walk the half mile back to our cars. (Who thought the warm up and cool down were a good idea?) We walked for longer than our usual 45-60 min. and it was intense.

I am beat and I know I will feel the after effects tomorrow.

Thanks, Larry. We did Sharon Woods today, and I could really feel the muscles on those hills -- especially the first time around. I'm really looking forward to getting strong enough that they don't bother me.
