I’m trying to get ready for my upcoming training for RnR LA by keeping my mileage low and working on increasing my leg strength this week. So yesterday when I had to run an errand, I decided to tack on some hill work. There is a street nearby with a massive incline that I like to call “El Diablo” because it’s evil.

early bird gets…the best treadmill

I would say I’m definitely a morning person. I tend to naturally wake up early. Natural in the sense that even if I don’t set an alarm, I still automatically wake up anywhere from 3:30-5AM. Most people I know look like a deer in headlights when they hear this. “That’s the time I went to bed!!” Ohhh those crazy youngsters.
