I couldn't motivate myself to run yesterday despite the beautiful weather, I was just too tired, then later on too hungry. So today straight after work I changed in to my running gear and went off to explore a road which I had often wondered where it went.
It started with a hill, and continued in the same vain. I'm rubbish at hills and have to admit I had to walk a couple of the really steep bits. I have never been so glad to stop and stand aside for a tractor! 2 mins respite. I've added a photo of a steep bit. It was 10 times steeper than it looks though.
While we're doing confessions I've been having a hard time mentally with the idea of running another 8km. All that hard work and no increase in distance to show for it?
So I added the extra km and did 9km. Sorry, I just had to.
Now I've found some really pleasant hilly bits I've an idea of doing interval training up them to see if I can get better at hills...
...but that is for another day. I think when I get to the big 10km day I will do that one on the flat. Thinking of taking a bus and running home for the biggy.
