called for 9 miles of hills. We set out about 8:15am. I had high hopes of 9 feeling like nothing after running 14 last weekend...yeah right!!!!! I have upped my cross training this last week trying to get my arms and core stronger. I am a tad bit sore and having some allergy issues. I felt like I couldn't get enough breath and that's never fun on a run. We headed up some smaller hills and then one larger hill and then back through town. I love running out on Oak Villa. It's out of town, with hardly any traffic and a nice hefty hill. We even passed another runner out on that road going the other way. We got home and I was impressed with our pace with the hills and headwinds (18mph) we faced. As soon as I got in the house the allergy headache I had during the night came back. Love how it goes away during a run (most of the time). It was fierce! Glad I have today off because I had to lay down for a while. The good news is I'm feeling better now and because of the headwinds, we got extra BURN in today! Lots of extra calories GONE, whoo hoo!
Looking forward to a nice easy five with Dallas, OR Run the Open Road tomorrow morning.
