Week 8 Run 3
Had to plan carefully this morning as our leaky shower is finally being fixed. Been like it since I moved in 2 years ago and for God knows how long before that! Needed to get out and back early before the man arrived.
Got a lift to my usual seafront haunt but decided I would need to turn to come home before the halfway mark in order to get back in time.
Went nice and slowly again and turned about 10 mins into the run. Weirdly for the first time felt I was getting stronger (and faster) as the run progressed. The running Gods were with me at the traffic lights but as I came to the twitten I realised I had misjudged the turn and would have to run uphill - I do not like hills!
I thought of the advice I was given here last time one beat - slow right down, take really short strides - and went for it. Had to dodge all the kids on their way to school - I was only going marginally faster than they were walking which proved a bit tricky.
But I made it - right to the top!
Happy Running - especially to those of you going uphill today x
