Yesterday was GORGEOUS! It was sunny – it was warm – it was summery. It was so nice that I actually had to escape the cold, dark confines of my cubicle and take a walk outside. Whoever landscapes the corporate center where I work does a lovely job. It’s a shame that most people in my office just sit at their desks all day long. I don’t think I’ll ever understand that.
When I got home from work, I was determined to do a hill workout on this massive hill I often drive on. It looked like a good challenge (from the car at least). I even put on some bright, cheery running clothes to pump myself up. I mean, it was 90 and humid and very sunny – obviously a great day to do a hill workout.
I got to the park and after a quick 1/2 mile warm-up, I set out to run my hill 3 times.
I know that picture is fairly small – so let me give you the details.
- Distance of hill: 0.54 miles
- Sharpest incline: 20% grade
- Number of other people running up the hill: 0
We never got a storm – and today it’s beautiful again… so I’m blogging from my balcony trying to get a little sun before I head off to DC to be a bridesmaid in one of my best friends’ wedding 🙂
