I am quite pleased to say it was easier than I had feared. I felt so good afterwards, like I had really accomplished something. ;)
I have a question for anyone (Victoria, Mike, Rick, Lori, etc.) that might be able to answer: While training for hills, which do you think is best? a) Stopping for 15-20 seconds a couple of times to catch your breath and then continue, or b) Slow to a walk if you need to, pick up running again when you can, just keep moving.
You know what? I'm looking forward to doing that one again.
