Hills, hills, hills

Tina, Bam and I hit Garin park last night for our run. 'We' decided to do the tougher of the two loops. Okay, really I was the one who made the choice. Our original plan was to do both loops, but that's really overtraining, as it is about 6 miles and would have taken more than an hour. The training schedule says 'No more than 45 minutes.' Of course, we haven't been complying with that to date, but that's not the point. We were both a bit tired and not motivated, so instead of doing both loops we decided to only do one. And since we were only doing one, I chose the harder of the two. About 1/2 way up the first big hill I was really sorry I had picked this one! I forgot how horrible and long the first hill is. Some not so bad hills and then one more big bad hill a little more than 1/2 way through the run. Wow, that is a tough one. But we made it! Go Team! With a couple of misdirected attempts at forging a new trail, we ran about 4 miles in about 55 minutes. Slow, yes, but as I said those hills are tough.....except for Bam. She probably ran 8 miles in about 55 minutes. Show off.

I am so happy that have seen the errors of your ways! Next time I'll put cones along the trail at Garin, maybe that'll help us!

Hahaha! I'm telling you those cones are inspiring! :-P
