The 50k training schedule called for 4 miles today. I decided to mix in some hill work with it. Matt and I drove over to Hughes Road on our way to work. We ran about a mile to Thomas Drive and ran up Thomas drive and Stoneway to the top of Rainbow Mountain, then ran back down. The downhill run has its own set of challenges! Call me weird, but running hills is fun.
Stoneway has a seriously steep 0.3 mile section.
Oh yeah, I left there and went to the gym and did a "pull" workout, chin-ups and rows along with some oblique twists, back extensions, and side bends.
