I'll make you laugh, or break my neck trying. This is usually accomplished with daily bouts of swimming, biking and running. A former "chub-a-holic," I got fit and healthy the good old fashioned way and went from a mid-pack athlete to top age group runner and triathlete. I'm a Writer and USAT Level 1 Certified Triathlon Coach. I guess that makes me part Tina Fey and part Jillian Michaels. Visit my coaching site at www.fomotraining.com

Wilke-ck Your Ass

First day back at Gazelles on Tuesday and Skud and I dared to face the Wilke Hill Repeats. I haven't lost a lot of fitness, but hills have definitely not been my priority. She picked me up at 5:45am and we drove over to Barton Springs and parked.
Ran Approx 2 miles to Wilke Road
7 times forward repeats
3 backwards
3 sprints up the hill
2 Mile Run Back to car

My form pretty much sucked on all of them, but I was able to get up and over the hill every time. We're supposed to focus on high knees, but I was too busy trying to focus on not passing out. It didn't help that it was already about 80 degrees at 6:30am. I knew I was struggling, but I think Coach was going easy on me since I've been slightly out of commission for the last month or so.

To which the Houstonian innocently inquired, "What's a hill? And why would one 'repeat' it?"
