On the Air - Peter Gabriel
Well on first outing at Altitude was more like an Attitude Run. Ten miles is a long way with a positive climb of 562 metres in 5km making it just under 1:9 all the way up.
My target was to run the whole way (which I did) using Leckwith Hill climbs as a base line to my rate of climb. My knees were knocking at the top and I did feel mildly bilious but I will put that down to the altitude.
Tonight's session will be a shorter outing as tomorrow, I'm running all the way up to 3000+ metres.
The present dip in an ice cold stream is doing wonders for my legs and I can feel my eyelids getting heavy - its hard work all this training.
