Well thats it Ive finished week and start my first week 9 run on Monday.
When I started the program I tried to keep to level ground, but over the last two runs I have started to enjoy (modest) hills. W8 R2 was a delightful evening run along a gradually rising country road, I didn't realise that there was a small group of Shetland ponies about 5 minutes from my house until then (my 6yo is going to love seeing them!) Isn't it great what you find when you are running around your local area ? My run today was 75% uphill, i'm quite suprised at myself. Ive got my eye on a really challenging hill that I am now determined to conquer in the near future.
Ive worked out a 15k run in the countryside around the town I live in, now how am I going to go from 5k to 15k ?!
