I live at the bottom of a very steep escarpment which has 2 roads, one terribly steep (1 in 4) the other more gradual but very long and not as high. I have always avoided it like the plague but I know that a bit of hill work will improve my fitness. Went out into glorious weather for running day today and decided to try Stamina on the gentler road. I ran the whole of the pod cast and then back down again to Speed. The whole distance was 7.12km in 65 minutes. 2 days ago I ran 7.19km in 91 minutes but that was a flat route along the valley floor. I think I have got myself a new route - it was very enjoyable in spite of the traffic fumes. Only 175m ascent but still an ascent! Feeling pretty good right now and looking forward to doing it again! Soon!
Edit: don't know why I am bragging about such slow speeds! Some of you people are awesome!
