Tonight's run was my strength run so I headed out for my usual local off road route again which included a good mixture of road, trail and hill. I opted to extend the route slightly towards the end of the run to make a nice little loop of just under 5k.
Upon reaching the off road section, I found I had to stop a couple of times along the trail to navigate around a couple of fallen trees, courtesy of ex-hurricane Bertha The photo above shows what I had to contend with. Not too much of an inconvenience really and, if anything, it actually added a bit more variety and interest
The 'hill' along the trail, actually it's set back from the trail, was ascended/descended half a dozen times in two sets of three, with a short run in between, just to work those legs a bit more I suppose I'll eventually have to find a more taxing hill but for now I'm loving this trail too much not to run it once a week. I suppose I'll just have to increase the amount of times I run up it
Well, that's my strength run that I complete once a week as part of my overall training regime and which I thought I'd share with you good people
Get those miles in your legs first and the speed will follow Happy running
