Hill Training

The training plan called for hills on Tuesday. Every run here in Devon is a hill session but this would be the first time I set out to do a hill workout. The plan called for up hill for two minutes, then jog down. Repeat 10 times. On the Garmin it looks like this


Turn it around and it looks like my bunting!


Looking ahead that hill session will feature heavily the next couple of weeks, can’t wait.

The Oldies are visiting at the moment so yesterday we headed in to Exeter, for what turned out to be a very long walk. DSCN2837

Madam was not overly thrilled to be on this expedition preferring to be shopping in Exeter rather than walking, but she found these stepping logs


and then tried to make friends with the wild life….


After lunch at the Double Locks Pub we headed back in to the city…


where we tried to find the jewelers that Dad got Mum’s engagement ring from, but after 50 plus years it is no longer in the same place-how odd!

About shazruns

I have been running since 2004 when I decided to do the Race for Life, as a close friend was terminally ill with cancer. Following that I did a couple of 10km at Leeds castle and Sandringham. Then in 2005 ran my first London marathon, then another in 2007 in blistering temperatures. I have entered the London marathon every year since but have been rejected, am now find maintaining my fitness & motivation hard, so when the email came through about Janathon I thought why not! Am hoping this helps with fitness, motivation and weight loss!! Wish me luck!

  1. Ah, Double Locks. I do like that pub and the walk down there. Have you tried canoeing from the quay? That can be good fun.

    We also used to enjoy cycling to Turf Locks in the summer. It’s one of the things I miss now that we don’t live in Exeter itself.

    Looks like a razor-sharp saw blade to me. Watch out that you don’t cut yourself!
