Hills in the Heat
I bared my legs today! My arms too! For the first time this year, I ran in shorts and a short sleeve shirt. Although the temperature only read +9C, it seemed warmer than that as I felt the heat when I hit the hills. The plan was to do four and as I finished the fourth and started to head back, I made a snap decision , turned around and up the hill I went again to make it a quintette! Although, some of the times were slower then last week, I felt strong and I'm pleased when I look at the peaks and valleys here. Not only do I feel my hiking and snowshoeing are great cross-trainers for running, now I'm thinking running these hills should be great cross-training for hiking and snowshoeing! I would have to say, I have the best of both worlds happening!
