I finally conquered Enemy Hill on Wednesday. It was tough but I stuck it out and made it to the top. My legs were burning fierce and I felt like I was on autopilot for a while afterward. To make it up the hill, I set little goals along the way. Each telephone pole and street sign became a target and I would tell myself, "If I can only make it to that stop sign, I'll be almost done."
After the run was over, I felt pretty good but the Achilles tendon area on each leg was sore. I think they're ok today. I'll have to see how they feel when I start running.
Tonight I'm going to do the same route I did Wednesday to make sure it wasn't a fluke.
I forgot to start the 100 pushup challenge yesterday. Hopefully I remember tomorrow.
