I'm finally getting the buzz! I am falling in love with my new route even though I have still not managed to get up that hill! Forgot my camera and phone so no pics today. I covered a longer area but still failed for that one minute on the hill! I still have a cough and was really happy with my run. Apart from the part where the dog decided to go into my OH factory even though he was at home! I panicked as I didn't see her go through the fence and she didn't come straight away when I called. We do meet him from work a lot so it's like going home from her.

Happy running all

Can you do the same route in the opposite direction so the steep bit is downhill? Or is it just as bad going the other way?

I'm afraid not. Where I start the road is closed of to public with a gate. I's out and back for me so I do get to run down the hill at the end!

Ah at least you get the downhill run too! Steep hills are a killer aren't they, I feel like I am running on the spot sometimes. I bet it is doing wonders for your fitness though.

killing my calf's. But I'm enjoying it for the first time since I started. That's worth the effort!
