I decided to tackle a the hill from the more challenging direction of which I live at the top.
I think I just flew down the hill and maybe my pace was then too fast, but I did pretty well, got almost back to the top then had to walk a bit - I mean I really had to!
Then someone nearly drove into me and I had to stop.
Started running again but then I got this horrendous stitch. I've had mild ones before and managed to run through them using the outbreath opposite leg thing but this one was just awful. I walked again and I was 15 mins in.
I just decided to put it down to experience and go home. I hope I will be able to manage that route some time soon. Thinking I might try an easier route again this evening so I can stay on target. I want my graduation run to be my 5k race on the 10th.
