So today in NZ I was forced by lack of other options to run out from my daughter's farm. Lovely scenery. Lovely morning. But omg the hills! The way out was 2 1/2 K of almost solid steep uphill track. I somehow managed to keep 'running' even though it was at a world record slow pace. And heck did I know I'd done a workout. The way back was obviously better and aided by gravity I speeded up so that the total 5K was still done in 44 minutes. I feel really pleased with myself. Previously I have always avoided hills as they made me so out of breath I neared collapse. Obviously I am now fitter than I was so though it was hard, it was 'do-able'. I think hill work may be exactly what I need so I can build up my stamina in time for my 10K in July. I plan to repeat the run on Monday and see if I can shave a bit off the time. (Sorry to tell you poor Brits but I needed to put sunblock on even though it was 8am! )
