"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😀
