Today's run was supposed to be a v-e-r-y s-l-o-w 5k. Well, actually, it's supposed to be tomorrow, but then I was supposed to do a 10k the day after. I'm not sure I can do that, so I budged the 5k up to today, plus it was a nice morning, so off I went. I wasn't sure where to go so ambled off along the top road which is gently uphill and then turns to go down into town via The Beast. That takes about 2k. I was pottering gently downhill, wondering where to go next, when the idea hit me.
Last time (22 days ago, apparently), I didn't make it all the way up it. So even if I didn't this time, it didn't matter. This was supposed to be a slow run, so I would take it nice and gently.
I did it! All the way up, no stopping I had the biggest grin on my face at the top. I pottered gently back home again and then had to do mini-circles round the pavements to get the last quarter-k on the Garmin, but woohoo!
1.3km of hill, 73m of ascent - yeah, did that
