First tough workout since the Connemarathon Ultra in Ireland this morning. Rich and I met up at 5:30AM for hill repeats at Cotton Row's "puke hill". Lots of other runners in the area this morning prepping for the Cotton Row run next month. I decided to do 10 repeats with the usual 1 mile warm up and cool down before and after. I wasn't really feelin' it initially, but as soon as I got the first two repeats under my belt, I was feeling better. I'm glad to slowly be getting back into my training routine again. After all, my Grand Canyon R2R2R attempt is coming up next week.
