Wk6r2 Hills of hell!

Wk6r2 Hills of hell!

Joined Strava, noticed nice circular route not far from home. Didn't look close enough to find out it was the hills of hell!

Ran it but thought I was actually going to die. 10 min run at the end up that last hill arggghh. Run speed at the end was simply not rolling backwards down the hill I think rather than forward but got home some how.

At Butlins Minehead for the rest of the week. I believe it is flat there ❤️

Well done you. I got caught out with hills once! It turned into a 'practice run'

Well done - we don't have many really big hills where I am, but I definitely notice the inclines. The trick I've tried is to be uphill going out, and downhill on the way home.

Well done you, I always say to my fit colleagues "I don't do hills" 😂

I was on my totally flat treadmill til last week, found the first outside route I tried a but too hilly and was looking for something a bit easier! 🙄 won't be trying that one again for a while. The down hill was so steep I had to lean back and brace. My poor knees hated up and down. Might have to move to Holland
