10 Miles with Hills
Houston at Dusk: Palm Trees and Speedy Cars
I've been adding more hills to my workouts, even some slow hills on easy days. I don't think I'll ever get enough hill work in to fully prepare for Big Sur. Today I ran 10 miles with hills and my average pace was 8:56/mile. I had an orange burst Gu gel - tasted good.
Anybody else more tired than usual? I've needed more rest lately, since I've been adding on the miles. (You can see my training log at the bottom of my blog.) Next week is a cut-back week and although I like the challenge of running lots of miles, it will be good to have a bit of a breather.
That's the gecko I found in my kitchen sink. He turned a pretty green when I took him outside. Speaking of wild creatures, here's a video of my husband catching a snake in our old backyard in the Houston suburbs (we sold our house last fall - FSBO). Since living in Texas, I've found two snakes inside, yes inside, my house. I haven't found one in the house I live in now, though - yet!
