Goose Creek Falls Hill Intervals

A simple course accomplished by thousands of tourists each year.  A little spice is added by doing a few all-out 1 mile hill repeats sandwiched between the fairly casual miles to and fro.  Trying to build a little power for my upcoming 50+ mile monster slated for August 6th:

Nutrition for post interval session recovery is critical. One leading strategy.
My plan is similar: Beer....Brat....Beer'n Brat.

I recharge for a few hours of splitting wood, once the evening cool sets in.  Like Alex Lowe said, "Everything is training."
