Leith Hill Half Marathon

I chose to spend my birthday running up (and back down, thankfully) Leith Hill.

Which was nice.

Leith Hill Half Race Number 2013 DCIM100SPORT DCIM100SPORT

Hilly, snow covered and icy at the summit, muddy and slippery on the way up and down. Great fun and good training for the hills and inclines I’ll face on the North Downs Way 50.

I made a real effort to improve my technique on the downhill sections of the run and to run or power walk the uphill sections.

Above all, I worked on my mental strength and the “just one foot in front of the other” continuous progress state of mind that I think will be so important for NDW50.

Less than 8 weeks to go now…
