What's with all the hills?

Week four, already?

Sunday's run was the last of the challenging ones: we ran 3.3 miles in 35 minutes, or about 10:30 pace, a little brisker than last week. Your homework is paying off!
The reason I say it was the last of the challenging runs is that from now on, we'll hit the water stop. The first mile and a half are hills - both up and down, and once we cross under the railroad trestle we're done with that nonsense. A little detour under the streets we cross but that's it for the steeps - it'll be back to our beloved flat, level, smooth surface!
The six am start time is a little cooler, isn't it? I hope you enjoyed yourselves, and that you'll be ready for next Sunday - to celebrate our distance achievement and the magic water stop milestone, we'll celebrate with mimosas - one of the Running World Approved post-run cocktails. Look it up!
