So off I went with Ozzy and Winston for W2R1 yesterday. Took a different route, so walked for a mile to get off the main road before starting the podcast and discovered that I was running up hill for all but the last 2 runs!!! A blessing or a curse? Anyway, managed it but will defo have a toke on the old inhaler before setting off tomorrow! W2R2 sounds a killer so will go back to first route which is mainly flat but all running into the pesky west wind…xx

PS Winston picked up his Jolly Ball with a hopeful look as soon as we got back!

  • Well done, if you can make it up the hills then that is definitely a good sign.

    A blessing if you can manage it, a curse if you can't. To think some people run across fells and mountains for fun!

  • Run on the flat for now, if you can as it helps keep up morale. Hills are good but an uphill struggle which can be out off til post graduation.

    The dogs will thank you for this 😊

  • Well done for starting Week 2. Hills - hardcore! I'm lucky to live in one of the flattest cities in the country. If I end up running elsewhere and encounter a hill it's a disaster! Hills are apparently the best exercise but sound like a curse to me. Perhaps you can use them the days you feel like a challenge...? :)
