Todays plan was 500 feet of elevation in no more than 4 miles. Power hike up, run down. I attempted this last week with tons of hills ran and repeated and only ended up with 200 feet!! I knew it wouldn’t be easy. I wouldn’t know how much elevation I would hit until I was home but I did my homework and had an idea.
We have a mile long road that is very steep. We go there every year to cut down our Christmas tree and many times I have thought .. there is no way I could run that or even WALK. Its beautiful. Its windy, and its HILLY!
I knew it would be challenging and I knew I would have to complete it more than once.
I DID IT!
579 feet to be exact.
The ups were hard. My phone even rang on the last part of the second up and I had a full work conversation. I am not sure how much Jess could understand me, but I talked none the less.
It was tough.
It was beautiful.
It is done.
Now to spend time with kids and take them to the local alien festival (wish I was kidding), pack and head back to Omaha for a week.
Feeling empowered! I LOVE Hills!
