Ironman Training - 2 Hour Hilly Run - February 23, 2014

Today's Workout included an 1/2 hour swim, then a 2 hour run, then a core workout.  I started this morning with the swim at my gym that was reopened after the ceiling collapsed last week.

With the run, I decided to head towards Port Jefferson and tackle the hill on Broadway.  Typically the hill is closed when it snows because it is so steep.  Cars heading up can never make it up and cars going down end up sliding and hitting the car going.  Then usually another car comes of the top going down, never sees the accident up ahead, and we have a pile up.

Today was about 50 degrees and the snow was melting.  My son wanted to run, but I suggested riding his bike.  I told him the hills were going to be tough, so I reminded him to get off this bike and walk the bike up if he wanted to. 

It took about 4 miles before we reached to bottom of the hill.  We paused and drank some water.  Then up we went.  My heart rate maxed at 168 and I felt like stopping, and I kept on going.  As I reached the top, I turned to see where Zachary was, and he was about 100 yards away, and I jogged back down and took the bike so he could walk up.  We both reached the top and continued on our bike/run.

We did a lot of hills and Zachary did great!  I were still about 2 miles from home, and the clock reached the 2 hour limit and I decided to walk home.
