15 Miles In The Hills Pushing The Buttons!
I set out on a very challenging 15 mile hill run.
After achieving my targets for this summer.
I had no desire to push the pace.
But very soon into the run I got into a groove!
My pace picked up on the first climb and I was motoring along at an indecent pace!
I smashed my record for finishing hunters hill with a sprint over the top of 11.6 MPH!
This is a steep mother fucker with a 1 in 3 max gradient!
But soon the heat of the day took its toll!
I mean its been one F**k of a wet summer this year with no time to adjust to warmer climates!
The third climb was up Ashurst Beacon a beast of a hill!
I got into a threshold pace and into the groove.
Past the Bradley Wiggins sign half way up!
I just pushed and pushed!!!
The final climb was up Appley Bridge.
I was in the Zone. pushing pushing!
At last I reached the top.
Just a descent down Parbold Hill left!
End Result. I equaled my best time this year.
