Dreaded Druid Hills Redux

Last Saturday, I ran the Dreaded Druid Hills 10K for the second year in a row.  For a recap of last year, click here.  This year, I wanted to run it again, especially since I was beginning to miss racing.

The hills were still dreaded.  Over the course of the race, there is a 123 feet climb. Seriously, absolutely crazy climbs.  Last year, I was too busy focused on getting up the hills to realize how twisty the hills are – there are some ridiculous spirals.

My focus was on finishing not on a PR.  I was glad for that as my time was 1:36 which was slower than last year.  One thing I didn’t do this year was wear my ProCompression socks.  A decision that I did regret later that day when my calves were on fire! From now on, I will #KeepItTight!

Do you train on hills? How do you recover after a hot, sweaty run?
