I have done a little running on the treadmill. I did what I thought was a killer hill workout -- quarter mile hills at 8% with quarter mile jogging in between. Thought my lungs would explode and managed 4 of them at progressively faster speeds. We've signed up for the 10.8k (automatic PR for 10.8k!) Egg Nog Jog in Georgetown on December 12, which I know vaguely is northwest of Toronto. Check out the elevation here. Yikes. I think every run til then should be hillwork.
Last weekend Phil and Tim ran the Chilly Willy 10k in Mississauga. I was a little raced out so cheered for them at the end (then promptly skeedaddled since it was, indeed, Chilly). The course was apparently a little short, but both guys were super quick and would have had an official PR if it was really 10k.
