I Run Up Hills

After Saturday's run in the heat, I decided to try running in the morning before work.  I got out Tuesday and Wednesday morning, but not today.  I didn't want to run in the rain.

Tuesday morning I ran only 2 miles, but I threw a nasty hill into it.  Up and over and at the bottom was exactly a mile, so I turned right around and went back up and over again.  When I turned around I "merged" with a group of three other ladies running up.  And then they each had to stop to walk at different points.  TAKE THAT!!  The pregnant chick is running up and over the hill!  One of the ladies caught me on the downhill... but I'm not going to let fly on the way down and risk tripping.  So whatever lady - you can claim that, if you want.

Yesterday morning was 3 miles on a different route.  I still had a hill, but it was less steep and over a longer distance (probably a half mile to the top).  My legs were really quite sore yesterday, which was weird.  I always run that hill... it's my normal running route up to the lake.  But the legs are feeling good today and I'll be running tomorrow morning again. 

I don't know if I will be able to get any more runs in before Ragnar (we're going out of town) and I am stressing out.  I am NOT prepared for this.  But it will be an adventure and I'm still excited for it.

Awesome! You're doing great and I'm sure you don't need to stress. You'll work your way through it the best you can. You're doing something amazing, no matter which way you look at it!

Much better to claim the win on the uphill, rather than the downhill.

Have fun at Ragnar!
