I have a number of endearing qualities, or at least I think they are endearing. The Piano Man by Billy Joel being played at 9.00 o'clock every Saturday is one of them
As a variation on the theme I played it in the car park as I set off on my second thirty minute run of the week. Being 'clever' I decided to run down the valley as it's mostly shaded and hopefully therefore cooler. So I set off from Carr Mill Dam off towards Blackbrook. As I reached the far end I was warmly congratulated on doing 15 minutes and felt quite happy with my general progress and route choice.
Oh how I was wrong! Not being clever at all, at 20 mins I caught on to the fact I had to run up hill all the way back. OMG my legs were screaming by the time I got to my goal and then I had to carry on up hill to the car park.
Lesson to learn is to plan your route right to the end
