Did the hill the steep way!

Did the hill the steep way!

After Thursdays bad run (completed target distance but slowly and miserably) today we chose to try the route round the golf course clockwise, and thus up the short stepp side and down the longer less steep side. The steep but was really really hard.(according to runkeeper biggest elevation climb 54m) I was "jogging" slower than I'd walk and it took a while of slower going on the plateau to recover, but OMG the long down was fantastic! Overall, I think I prefer that way and I can understand now why the parkrun goes that way round. I was still knackered at the end (it is boiling out there!) but we clocked our best time! Woo hoo!

Also , in topic of "rude" runners, I think we are blessed in leamington. Most acknowledge us in some way - today a fast runner was going the other way , very quickly and too fast to speak, but they still waved a thank you cos hubbie and I run single file on the narrower parts to let others past!

  • Congrats on PB! Think that I will try out Runkeeper as your stats are cool!

  • Like your style both of you. Also lets face it,it costs nothing to be polite does it, I always wave, nod or say good morning when I pass people.

  • Well done for the pb and going for the big climb. I love the rewards of getting a good downhill after a tough climb. You've inspired me for my run today. I've been taking a break from a similar run. And running in a field the last couple of weeks To avoid the big hills but Think I might head that way today for a bit of downhill action :-)
