S & I on Saturday:
S and I went out for an 8 miler in Camden Saturday afternoon, and then a 3 miler recovery run Sunday afternoon in Rockland. She did not warn me of the hills we were going to run, and in her words "well, I can't say we didn't work some hill training in to prepare us for our races!" She wasn't kidding. There was one particular hill that the grade must have been 20% or more, but it was over with pretty quickly. However, the last mile was a long gradual uphill. My hip flexors were burning by the end of the run.
This was our Saturday run pretty much:
The other part of my weekend was very similar to last weekend. Every weekend we have our normal chores we do:
- Dump run
- Sweep and wash kitchen floor
- Vacuum all carpeting
- Do a gazillion loads of laundry, fold & put away
- Grocery shop
- Clean one of the bathrooms - rotate each weekend
Do you incorporate hills into your runs?
Does cleaning house lighten your spirit?
- It does mine! I feel so good after purging the house of unused items!
