That was a demanding 10K run
The first mile this morning was a breeze – it was a totally flat trail. Then came the sign in the picture suggesting steep grades. They were not kidding. The first hill was straight up 13 floors over 0.2miles. That is a 12.5% grade!! Fortunately that was the toughest hill. By the time I reached the end of the trail and came back, I had climbed up 32 floors over 2 miles. And, in the spirit of one good turn deserving another, went back for seconds. This time, once I reached the top of the first hill, I had to stop for 30 seconds and bend over to catch my breath.
In all 6 miles (10K) and 64 floors.
I am ready to go back to bed now 🙂
