Not much else to say, except AMEN spring is here! It was 80 degrees today, and I celebrated with with a 10 mile hill workout!
I enjoyed seeing all my hill "friends." The mail man, the UPS delivery guy, the workers that have been building the house on the corner for over a year, and my very favorite...the old man that lives two houses down from the corner of the top of my climb. He came out and greeted me and then came to "see if I wanted cold water" about 1 hour in.
In Austin we don't have hills long enough on the trails, so road repeats it is. The hotter the better :) I have been doing this workout for a few years now, and have come to know the workers who get their jobs done while I run up and down, and up and down, and up and down. I have come to appreciate seeing them and am very grateful for their waves, smiles, and friendly words. (For those of you who have beautiful trail repeats to run...be grateful!!)
I did this workout over the winter, but TODAY was just the way I like it....bright sunshine, friendly faces, and great running.
Welcome Springtime!! Afterall, sunshine does make me oh so happy!
Gotta love days that start at 5AM, so that you can get a workout in, a solid workday, and hill repeats...yippee.
