Hill training in Lubbock for Cactus Rose 100
So, nothing beats a good hill workout. The only way to adequately prepare for the Cactus Rose 100, I am told, is to do hill repeats. You have to train your legs (your quads in particular) for running up and downhill.
Well, that is a challenge for someone living in Lubbock, TX, which is a pretty flat place. I found a hill on campus. It's not much of a hill, but I hope it will do for my weekday runs. I run up and down it, repeatedly.
Here are some pictures of my little hill.
