I enjoyed that!

Haven't done any hill work for many weeks so went out this morning not for my usual longer run but to just have some fun, which I did. :)

Off up through my favorite forest tracks and onto my loop of 800m which has 3 ups & 3 downs all quite steep but not that long. It was fun, I did push the hills but took 2 minutes recovery after each loop and did 3.

Damn I enjoyed that today, the sun was shining through the trees but most of the time it was shaded and cool, just perfect for running. Its on days like this that I wished I could do it all again but will just have to wait for Tuesday :)


Have a nice weekend everyone.

  • well done - how lovely and inspiring. Did my own hill route this morning -body protesting a bit now - but it feels good knowing I am challenging my body!

    Happy running :-)

  • Hi glad you enjoyed your run, we went out early today, park was lovely as you say with the sun coming through the trees it was very quiet with it being Sunday. Only did 3.44k, feeling sluggish, had a few glasses of wine last night, fatal going out the next morning. Off on hols on Thursday so will be running early mornings with a lovely sea breeze, can't wait. Pat

  • Have a wonderful holiday Pat, I'm heading off myself on 18th, I will celebrate another birthday while I'm away, but hayhoo its just a number!! Enjoy, hope your shoulder is improving :)

  • Enjoy hols and happy birthday.:-)

  • That blog oozed with your passion for running Oldgirl, what a delightful run and well done.

  • Well done, sounds like a lovely route.

  • I am glad that we have managed to share the good runs round just about everybody this weekend. You are an inspiration, Oldgirl.

  • Isn't it funny that there are often a spate of good runs, then not so good but it never puts us off and that's the important thing. Positive posts are just as important as the bad one's Ianno.

    Was thinking about our Malky while running up the Ups today haven't seen him for ages, did he forget to stop running at some point do you think!?! Hope all is well with him.

  • I'm sure he will reappear soon.

  • Having fun is what it's all about Oldgirl! Fab run, well done! :)

  • Sounds like a great run - I can see why you enjoyed it and want to get back out there and take on those hills again :-)

  • The actual map doesn't do the hills justice really but my H/R readings show there were Ups alright!! :)

  • Sounds like we both enjoyed our run today, and i think it only spurs us on to keep going :)
