I’m getting acquainted with the new neighborhood.
Our neighbors are nice and have reminded us numerous times that street parking is “difficult” in the area.
We only live like a mile-and-a-half away from our old house.
But, in order for me to do a loop around Green Lake like I always did before, I have to run two miles there that require going down and up a hill. The return requires running up and down and up a (very steep) hill.
The loop around Green Lake is the same. I feel at home there. Sometimes I even feel very fast there.
They are giving me a good beating.
But, all this “hill training” will just make me a stronger runner, right?
Plus, running 7 sweaty, sunny (and a few hilly) miles is the best therapy there is.
