Lift Those Knees

I ventured back to hills today - seeing as I'm feeling so good with my running. Now that it's so light at 5:30am we're back on the trails and today we hit the Simpson Falls trail. It's a really pretty trail but you don't actually get to appreciate the beauty because the trail is fairly rocky and you have to concentrate on where you place your feet. There's also a lot of high steps which are a bit tough on the quads.

It's been a while since I've run hills and I was finding it pretty challenging and getting a bit tired when I lost concentration and didn't lift my feet up high enough and ...



Luckily I landed on the soft stuff and not the rocks. And, being the hard-core runner that I am, I picked myself up and kept going for the last 6k.

  2. Oh my, losing concentration on a trail like that can be fatal. Luckily you landed on the soft stuff! Good for you for finishing your run! Sounds like you are now completely recovered after the marathon. Take care!

  9. That's the 4rd post (near in a row) that you have been injured. You must be really unlucky.
