January 3 - Hill Training

Tuesday, January 08, 2008

Last night the HM clinic members & I ran a total of 9.6 kms. 400m x 8 of that was uphill. I did it with little to no pain in my shins! I am SO thankful for my new runners. My only complaint was that the wind was a little on the obnoxious side. Most of the time it was a gentle westerly wind but the gusts! Almost always when I was facing the most difficult part of the hill, it would blow so hard that I felt like a cartoon character: my feet were moving but I wasn't going anywhere. Turns out, it was blowing at 35 km/hr. Not bad by some standards but..... hm, let's just say that I was running a little more crooked/backwards/slower than I would like.
Yesterdays eating was not too bad. I went about 100 calories over but I also burned 752 on my run so I feel no guilt.
Today is a rest day from running. I've challenged the ladies in LIC to a little strength/cardio challenge so perhaps I'll get a good start on that. I have until Sunday to complete a LOT of lunges, squats, pushups, situps and planks.... it wouldn't look too good if I didn't meet my own challenge, would it?
