I've been meaning to post this and it's just now getting to the top of my priority list. Last weekend one of my workouts was to ride Chieftan Hill (which is a steep, 2-3 min hill) 8 times. I'd done it a few times before, but not that many.
Someone who knows Brett asked me about my workout and when I told her I needed to do Chieftan 8 times, her immediate response was, "He's trying to kill you!". Now, I'm sure Brett's not trying to kill me. However, I did take some pride in the fact that I was doing a very tough workout and would live to tell (or post) about it.
And not only did I do it, I've done it a second time since then....followed by a run. So he hasn't killed me yet.
