Weekly Hill Workout: Two Hills Are Better Than None

It was the kind of day that made you want to
forget it was a hill workout day and just go for a nice, leisurely,
soak-up-the-sun kind of stroll around the golf course. Which is exactly
what Tom Cali and Martha Nelson, basking in their post-marathon muscular
bliss, did. Ever the performer, Calidonna even threw in an elbow-pumping
mini-burst to appease the hill queen (notice the "q" and the
"u" stick together like glue John and Jim). Anyway, those with
no "I just ran a sub-3 hour marathon yesterday" excuse, which
included Jim Moore, Andrew Webb, John Domico, Ken Davis, Lance Bland, Jim
Myers, Jonathan Thurley, Kimberlyn Nelson, and Rob Peterson, had some hill business
to attend to. Her Hyner-ness sunk to a new low by only prescribing two.
However, the majority of the crew felt unfulfilled by such a small elevation
gain, and went on to much higher heights. Davis was showing off the benefits of
the Humpin' Dumpties training regimen, a top-secret Euro-trashin' leg-thrashin'
hybrid that relies on intense daily windmill sessions to increase performance.
Anyway, nice work today guys. Hope all that weekly pain and suffering pays you back big time in the mOUTaiNs this Saturday!
