“Peaking” For My Exercise Stress Test

My upcoming exercise stress test is a few weeks away now so it’s time for me to “peak” my training for it, as in concentrating on activities that closely mimic the upcoming event. In this case, that’s intervals or fast “tempo” walking uphill. Morgan Hill is in a valley that’s pretty flat in the middle where I live, but gets very hilly on the two sides, which I can get to quickly by bike. So it’s time to do a lot of fast walking in the hills. Today I visited the West side, which has a bunch of streets on the slopes of El Toro with not too long but steep climbs. They are a nice challenge, and it felt great.
