I knew Cincinnati had hills...really I did, but I didn't think about looking at the elevation for the 1/2 marathon. Until now...
I know you're all thinking "Is that a 3 mile downhill at the end of 13.1? Awesome!" but that first 3/4 looks a bit tough. Is that a 6 mile hill? Darn it, the 10k wasn't bad last year, but this is way more of a hill than some bridges over the Ohio River.
Here's my typical run elevation.
Looks like I'm going to have to find 6 mile hill to practice. Lol. I'll just say sorry to Carrie now for convincing her to do the half. :-)
Meanwhile in week 1 of 1/2 marathon training this is what I did/will do:
Monday: Run 3
Tuesday: Spin (20 miles)
Friday: run 3?
Saturday: xt (TRX?/Spinning?)
Runday: Long run (not so long run) of 4 miles (with a hill- big one at that)?
Looks like I'm going to have to incorporate some hill training into the mix this Spring. Any suggestions?
