Today was my hill training run.
On Wednesdays, I run from our house to Military Reserve by way of Elephants trail. It takes me approximately 15 minutes to run via some fun trails in the Reserve, to Military Reserve Connection trail. From the trailhead, I run up Military Reserve Connection to Crestline to the farthest trail dropping down onto Kestrel. I run down Kestrel to the trail sign. And then I run back. That's one loop. Some days I run this loop four times, sometimes I run it five times.
Today I ran the hill only four times, then spent about a half hour running around in military reserve. Total, I ran 13-1/2 miles, with elevation gain of 2,881. Not a good pace...but oh well.
