Three Things Thursday
1. I have a cold and it sucks. Spud thoughtfully passed it along last week and now I’m stuffed up, but have a drippy nose at the same time (?). Hopefully getting out to run will get it out of my system.
abhor am learning to love hill repeats again. Every training cycle I do them and then after every race I slack off. I completed week 1/7 yesterday with 4 repeats. I’m supposed to do 600m hills with a grade of 6-8%. I figure that my 410m hill with an average grade of 10% (12% for 200m, turn corner, 8% for 210m) is good enough. Thankfully my friend came by with her little girl and she was nice enough to watch the kids at a park while I ran. This meant that I didn’t have to push Spud up the hills with me. I know I won’t be this spoiled every week, but it made my run so much more enjoyable!
3. I’m off to bake. I don’t do it often – it’s more Colin’s thing, but I can make a couple of things pretty well. Today it’s Apple Crisp and Banana Bread. Good thing I run so often so I can eat what I make!
Finished product: Is it bad that I want this to be my dinner when I get back from clinic?
I am with you on hills. My body can never get used to them.

Nice job on the hill repeats! I find it really hard to motivate myself to go out and get them done

Whine…snivel…I have bronchitis. Please send Colin over with our share of the baked goodies, which look fabbilous. Oh, and by the way: Way to go on the training runs!

I would totally make that my dinner! It's fruit, it's practically healthy!

My hill repeats were tough last night. I realized I lean wayyyy too much forward when I do them and need to be more upright. I think I looked like a little old lady last night.
