Nope, me either!!!
I haven’t been able to post on my greedybread for a few weeks because I couldn’t upload photos…..
Then I realise that I have run out of space!!! Duh….
So I buy some more space and do another upgrade and WTF!!!
It will not upload the photos!!!
It is scorching hot here today again….
Glad I went out nice and early for my run…
Long run today and I made sure there were a few long hills in there too after reading john’s hill post @ fitfor365.
I don’t mind the hills, I find it is more mental than physical work now days and I have set myself a few hilly targets round here to do.
I do, sadly, need to limit the hills as I find it makes my sore leg twinge….
I thought maybe incorporate some hills into a long run every fortnight…
I never run completely flat, there is always some hill when I run but just not continual hills…
THE MT EVEREST LIST:
I can do 9/10’s but have stopped just before the final slog….Grrrrr
Haven’t tried for a while..
Time to do it!!
2) Mt Eden Summit...Never tried.
3) Queenstown Rd hill…Bloody nightmare , can barely walk up it:)
Soooooo ugly, can’t even find a photo of it….
Mini Mt Everest:
I thought this week I would on my cunning shady tree run, go up the other end of the streets which are the hilly ends..
Some cool hills I have done…
1) The Auckland Marathon Harbour bridge climb..
This is quite special as the only time you can walk/run over it , is when they close it for the marathon…
2) Onehunga Selwyn Street hill…Short and nasty..
This was a major mental hill..
Its not that large or hard but physically/mentally I could not do it when I started running.
It’s about 1-1.5km slow winding to the top but it’s not steep, its like a slow burn….
And it doesn’t look evil…even now if I am tired, it can kill me:)
4) Mt Eden road hill.
Looks worse than it is…. This is the opposite end of the road to where the summit is.
It is a long road of about 5-6 kms I think.
The hilly bit I mean is about 1 km in length, slowly going to the top…
5) Streets within the walls in Siena...Short and very nasty….Picturesque BUT nasty…
6) Worse if Possible, Streets within other Tuscan towns….Montepulciano,Montalcino, Pienza…..
I would just like to add that there wasn’t a lot of long endurance running while I was here…
It was short bursts..HA HA HA…
Very short bursts.
That is all I could manage.. Tabata training at its best:)
Seriously, those old ladies who go up and down those hills all the time??
Hats off to them…should that be runners off to them?
Err no RUNNING in Kuala Lumpur…Far too hot.
You dripped sweat just moving…My clothes were constantly sticking to me…
Soooo humid…Only running here was to the cold shower.
I shall leave you today with the steepest st in the world, which is in NZ, Dunedin.
My son went there at Xmas with my brother:)
There was no mention of running up it though:)
2013 Miles/Kms Challnge…
Saturday , I did NOTHING!!!!
Well walked about 10 kms but I don’t count the daily walking…
Far Far too hot and I left it too late.
Sunday…15.5 kms run (nice and early)
