The Hills are Alive… on Wyoming Ave

7:15 AM: Chalean Extreme Burn Circuit 3 + KB Diversity (50%) – COMPLETED

11:40 AM: 4.5 Mile Hill Repeats (Avg. Pace 9:11 min/mi) – COMPLETED

Today’s run was the worst of all three runs this week. In my defense, I decided to tackle some hills. I mean, I should be somewhat prepared with hills knowing that NYC marathon starts off climbing the Verrazano Bridge.

Also, let’s not forget about the Queensboro Bridge that everybody is warning me about.

I can’t complain about the average pace today being that it was so hilly and windy. I’m glad I wore my sunglasses otherwise, I’m sure I would have gotten some type of debris in my eyes.

Yesterday’s run was not as hilly, but definitely much flatter than today.

Now, if I could hold that pace for 26.2 miles, then I’d be on to something. HA. Like that could ever happen. Give me a year or two. I’ll be there!

On another note, it’s been weird not wearing my Garmin. I haven’t charged my new one yet (nor have I read the instruction manual…). I better get to it since I have a long run this coming weekend.

Anybody watching any sports? Did you see the Yankees make a comeback at the bottom of the 9th? How about some football? It’s Thirsty Thursday!!!! All I’m drinking is water. HA.

    • I love you, Coach. My next marathon (or the one after the next one) is the one that you will train me to get to that marathon. I can’t be too ambitious now, can I?
