This week called for a 10K for my long run (I follow a modified version of Hal Higdon’s intermediate half marathon plan for long runs). This past Saturday I ran the DCRR Langley 8K as my training run (free races for the win). I am glad I did not study the course map ahead of time because it was hilly! I definitely got my butt kicked and had to walk up the last mini hill. Thank goodness I was running with my friend Rachel, she was definitely encouraging and did a great job with all the hills!
Courtney was volunteering at the event and was able to snag the above picture-thanks! Mar also ran it and has a nice recap of the race here. While Shamrock will be flat, this 8K made me realize I need to incorporate more hill training (focused hill repeats and/or hillier training courses). Following the run I had brunch with my mom.
We went to Kapnos, where we enjoyed some Greek food. This restaurant is owned by a former Top Chef contestant, Mike Isabella. Their current head chef was a contestant on the show this past season. My favorite dish was the melitzanosalata (smoked eggplant, roasted peppers, walnuts, and feta).
Later in the evening I enjoyed some sushi with Cliff.
Today I am linking up with Tara at Running n’ Reading for her Weekend Update.
How do you incorporate hills into your training?
Any hill workout recommendations? Indoor or outdoor.
