Here's a chance to catch up if you missed the U.S. news this week. ;)

Running hills 2:44:39 [3] 12.91 km (12:45 / km) +1232m 8:38 / km
slept:6.0 shoes: Salomon Speedcross Bordeaux

Since Monday was the start of 12 weeks of training for a mountain stage race, 'Bent and I headed north to Georgian Peaks and pretended we were in the Alps. The morning was hot and humid with a few ominous clouds and a rumble or two of thunder. Hill repeats are mind numbing but I listened to podcasts to pass the time. I hiked up using poles and did easy runs down. On my 5th ascent, I noticed 'Bent taking a fork to the left so I explored a grassy trail to a different peak, which was at a lower elevation and gave me itchy legs. The main road is the way to go. A few other people, including WandAR, were doing hill workouts today but it wasn't crowded.

Before heading home to the dogs, we had a yummy pizza lunch at Pie accompanied by lemonade spiked with raspberry vodka and peach schapps, and lots of water to rehydrate. I'll need to do a lot more of this over the next while (hill training *and* nice lunching).
