Joke: What’s round on the outside and high in the middle?
And boy do they have the High part right!
Over Memorial Day weekend, the Mrs. and I went to Ohio to visit her family and friends. While there I needed to get some kind of workout in.
I needed something to justify all those glorious home cooked meal and gluttonous drinking occasions!
The good news:
Last year - I ran the neighborhood and was the hills forced me to walk. It felt like it took forever to get anywhere. I ran down to the end of the block and back. Whew! What a workout.
This year - Hills? What Hills? This is easy, the end of the block?! Way to easy! Let’s keep going!
The bad news:
I'm feeling so good, I decide to find some serious hills (not a hard thing to do around here). I found the hill from hell! Short and steep!
14 % grade - 0.3 miles – 100+ feet from top to bottom.
Hill repeats – 2 miles worth! That’s 5 times up and down.
Down 14%! That’s a nice workout on the quads.
I thought that the Midwest states were supposed to be flat!!
