"If only I could...be running up that hill...with no problem"!🎵

Sorry, I do love a bit of Kate Bush and that song was so apt on my run today as I twice tackled a hill, which at weekends, is part of my local Parkrun course (I ran at a less challenging course on Saturday!) So lucky to be able to run over to the course but goodness me that hill is a toughie! I managed it slowly and steadily the first time and then after the glorious descent and a run on the flat I attempted it for a second time. 😮Sadly, I had to give in to my screaming quads just before I reached the brow of the hill! Never mind, another time that hill will be mine! Must get a photo to share too, as it is as beautiful as it is impressive!

Happy running t his week to everyone😀

Flying Sandra ! Massive respect and a couple of fist pumps thrown in for good measure ! :-)

I like hills , I started running up 'em a while back but then that kicked off the pain in my calf and to my shame , I haven't tackled one since ! I need to build up my legs a bit more I think before I give them another good go !

I love the tags on your post , very apt ! :-D xxx

Reminds me of the Iron Maiden song, Run to the Hills

"Run to the hills... run for your lives"

Quite apt really. I should put it on one of my running playlists!
