I got home, the sun was shining and it was nice and warm out. Perfect weather to start my first session of hill training this season. I laced up and got ready to go go go!
Got about 1.2K into the run when my Mom appears (in her car.) She needed a place to go before her evening meeting. Apparently she forgot to call earlier. :) Back to the house we go. It’s okay Mom I’m not mad!
After she left I went right back out and totally rocked it! Warmed up with another 2K and then proceeded with the hill training. Basically I just ran to the steepest road in my neighborhood and ran up and down it 4 times. My heart rate was through the roof near the end. It was tough but after a few sessions it’s really going to make a huge difference in my endurance. The end result, a little over 6K.
I got back to the house and tried to get my key out of the zipper thingy in the back of my shirt….. AND THE ZIPPER WOULDN’T WORK. I went around to the back of the house, removed the shirt (it was my under layer) so that the neighbors wouldn’t get a show. ;) Sat on the front steps and screwed with the zipper and it WOULDN’T BUDGE. I should note by this time it was getting pretty chilly out and I was only in my T-shirt. Still no go. After 10 mins of shivering I managed to rip the key through the material. (And yes, I opened the door with the key still in the shirt.)
Finally inside, shivering but still sweating.
PS. Just noticed when I tracked my run that since January 16th I’ve logged 150KMs!!!
