Well, we actually do hill repeats every Tuesday. At least some do. Remember, going up and down the hill once is an ‘instance’. You need at least two trips up and down to call it a repeat. And you get no credit for just running by and looking at the hill. Anyway, for anyone tackling any ultra distance in the near future, it is essential to incorporate hill repeats into your plan. Builds up you quads, glutes and core. It also r…eally strengthens your cardio-vascular endurance. Ya know, all that heavy breathing! Soooooo, tough it out! Hit those hills! You’ll be a better runner for it. Promise!
Tonight should be pretty decent on the weather front. No precip. Warm (but not hot) temps with some humidity. We’re getting nice-size crowds on Tuesdays. Here are the details for this evening:
