It was among this beautiful grass that I did a twenty minute Kenyan hill session whilst on holiday recently. My route took me from the villa, down the steep, metalled, road to the plunging goat-track which led to a Roman bridge in the base of the valley. From here was a short, steep uphill section to rejoin the sinuous curves of the metalled road as it folded in upon itself. Once back on the tarmac, it was grind uphill, curve after curve, with no respite, back to the beginning of the goat track. Then repeat. Twice more.
It was a sweaty Smileyrunner that eventually dragged itself back to the villa. A tough training session. But scenically stunning.
Smile rating 7.5/10
