Another 300 yards over the brow of that first hill, this is the daunting sight that greets me. I have to walk to the top of the next hill that is way in the distance, it is almost as much work going down first. When I get to the top I veer off to the right for another mile, that is relatively flat, to my "watering hole" for a well deserved pint and something to eat before facing up to the return journey. Going home it is an easier downhill twice and one up.
This journey is no mean feat on it's own, I do this after being on my feet all day at work too. Of course this is not a daily occurence, only when the weather conditions are suitable, which is when my home gym comes into play.
Tommorrow it is Southampton's half marathon run. I won't be doing that, but I will be trying that 5 mile walk (on the flat).
