A slightly more challenging run
Thanks to Jenny for persuading me to join her in the Heartbeat Challenge. It was probably the most physically challenging thing I've done for a long while, but rewarding as a result. The hill run really was that, with lots of climb, quite a bit of bog and about half a mile of quite uncomfortable cut heather, finishing with about a mile on tarmac. After that, the 10 mile cycle was ALMOST a doddle - mostly downhill, mostly wind-assisted, but with a killer steep uphill bit 2 miles from home. The "before" and "after" pics say it all... (thanks J's Dad for lurking and snapping)
Great fun! Perhaps BASOC can have a few more people doing it next year?
