I listened to everyone's comments and advice on Friday after my hip pain and decided I would do a longer run, but take it easy. I decided that although my longer route is hilly, the paths are at least flat (no camber) so out I went for an hours run. Now when I say hilly, the hills are gentle but relentless, 35 minutes of uphill at the start of the run to reach the beacons, with only a little walk to catch my breath. I met loads of cyclists as I joined the South Downs Way and had to run in the longer grass through the buttercups and daisies to avoid being mowed down. As I approached the farm two lovely horse riders were just behind me, so I held the gate open as they went through. They followed me along the next field, me trying to look fit and healthy whilst actually feeling knackered and wishing I hadn't worn shorts for the first time, them relaxed just enjoying a leisurely walk, then they had to galloped to catch me up when they realised I was heading for the same gate they needed, so yes I beat two horses across a field! Off they went as I headed along the valley, I reached the end as my alarm went off telling me I had run for an hour but I was too close to home to stop, so I continued up the next hill and took the pathway home. My third 10k and this time no hip ache, my knees are fine, and I don't feel like I'm going to die so I have actually claimed my badge. I'll be sticking at 10k for a while now, trying to improve my time, and cutting out the walk break in that hill.
