Week 5 training complete.
Moving on to week 6. I don't have to run a million miles, I just have to get through one week at a time.
Week 5 was a bit crazy.
I have wanted to do hill repeats on the corkscrew out in the Ouachita National Forest (a 1/2 mile long, steep, windy hill). Some weeks the 2 hour drive to get there just isn't going to happen. Last week was one of those weeks.

Hill training night, I decided to do a tire drag instead. I have been dragging a tire once a week, 4 miles, with a 30 step run/30 step walk ratio. To replicate the 1/2 mile hill I decided to do 6 miles with a half mile run/half mile walk ratio. I did, for 5 miles. My butt is still officially kicked. What a hard workout! Our Beagle needs exercise, so Coach Mikey goes with me at night or when it isn't too hot:
