Today was another hill workout, and my legs are definitely feeling it now. Since the training plan added 15 minutes to the last workout, I had to add some more hills to my route. The hills I chose to add are real “character builders” and kept my heart rate well above the targeted zone 3.

The run felt good overall, and it was nice to start this run after the sun was up. I got called in to work last night and didn’t get home until about 2:00 AM. While this would usually give me the motivation I need to skip a run, I decided to stick to the plan. I’m really glad I did.
Next up? Saturday’s plan calls for a 1:15 run, but I’ll probably stretch that to 1:45 if I can make it to Runner Bill’s and get some Gu before then. Of course, this is depending upon the weather as well, since Earl is headed this way. No rain or is currently predicted for Richmond, but I could end up working and helping out our team in Norfolk if Earl hits them hard.
