Last Intense Hill Workout Before the Pig

We did our regular weekly hill workout today! After all of those days of rain this week, it was a treat to be able to walk in sunshine.

We felt pretty good. I've said it before, but it's true -- we can feel the difference in our strength by doing hills. Though Cincinnati is pretty hilly, I'm really only concerned about Eden Park. I've trained harder this year than the last time I did the Pig, so I should be fine.

I also keep thinking about when we did Big Sur. Everyone warned us about Hurricane Point, but the worst part of the race was the continuous hills later on.

We think we'll do a light hill workout next week, but if the weather doesn't cooperate we can skip it. We are tapering after all!

I know we'll be fine in Cinci as long as it isn't too hot that day. Maybe we'll even PR.
