Doubler Hills

I did my routine. I added some triceps lifts. It was uneventful.

I ran in town this afternoon. I'm calling the route the Doubler Hills 1.83 miler, as it begins with a wickedly large hill and ends with a shorter steeper hill. I made a big mistake in the beginning when I ran up that first hill. Even though the ensuing 2/3 of a mile was a gradual downhill I was out of breath and very tired. I never did get into a rhythm. I walked up the last hill. I finished in 30:39 with walk breaks totaling 6:00. So I know for next time that I should just walk up the first hill. I'm also looking at different routes in that area that may be less hilly while I'm still getting used to running outside.

I would avoid hills at this stage of your running. Even if there down hill.
