So yesterday I slept in until 9:30, today by 9:30 I had already run 6 miles.
The route was as hilly as I'd expected. The route out had just two little hills and one good down-hill and the rest seemed pretty flat. Unfortunately, running it the opposite direction I quickly came to realise that those 2 miles that 'seemed pretty flat' were actually slightly downhill on the way out and now I was looking at 2 miles slightly uphill. Oh boy!
Luckily I had fueled with a little sweet potato (1.5) and a sprinkling of cheese (2) and not only did I survive, I did it in a minute and a half faster than last Sunday!
I refueled with another pineapple pot (1.5) and a ribena really light (0).
Now I'm off to organise, clean, and make cupcakes for work tomorrow.
