While I was home in the 'burbs of Seattle, I ran a long and steep hill which led up to my parents home. I had never ran up this hill in all the years I've lived over there because of its' steepness. I ran this hill at the end of my 5 mile run and felt great. Loved it. Another benefit to living where I do now, because there's hills everywhere. You can't run outside and avoid a hill.
Yesterday, I ran down to the gym and lifted weights for one hour and ran home. I'm tired and sore today. I hope I'll be able to get another nice workout in today.
