One more run in the cold. This makes it three in a row in the 30 degree night air. Still feeling good on the uphill efforts. I have not been pushing too much on these hills, but I think with time I will get stronger and faster because of them.
Right now the plan is to keep the hills in each run and make sure I push through each hill and keep my pace high (or steady) about 200 meters after the hill. This helped me in last year's Old Soldiers Day Race and it should pay off again if I can keep the intensity light with consistancy.
