My vacation in Colorado showed me one thing. I don't run enough hills.
There is a 5k that's starts from Mia's school with the motto I survived the hill. Last year it was my downfall in the race. This year I'm taking a new approach.
I made the hill into a Strava segment(ran it 11x since 7/2). Hopefully by October come race time I'll have covered the .2 mile segment a few hundred times. Surely running it so much will have added benifits like making me better at running hills fast.
Last year the race was won in 18:05. I was 3rd in 19:33(had almost 2 months off prior thanks to my back). I figure to win it 17:30 this year. Pretty quick for a race that goes up the whole 2nd half. If I can run 17:30(a min faster than I've run this year& on a flat course) by mid October surely I can run sub 17 at Turkey Trot. Probably not but I can dream lol.
