I've just run a mile uphill. Admittedly it was the same 0.13 miles eight times over, but it all adds up. Yes! it was a sun-bathed Kenyan hills session today. And what a gorgeous day it was. It was only 5 deg. C, but the sun shone warmly on my back as I headed out to my hill rep field. Last time I was here it looked a bit different...

There's not much you can say about a hill session is there? I went up and down, in one continuous movement until I was knackered. Then I went home. It's one of those sessions where the benefits won't be felt until you find yourself easing up a hill that you normally struggle up.
He says hopefully.
Still, the fields are beginning to be populated by sheep now. The farmers are bringing them down to be nearer the farm to make it easier when they're lambing.  It's an exciting time of year.

  1. i find kh's a great form of meditation (of sorts) and will always get my enjoyment vote over faster intervals. i find them rather hypnotic..or maybe im just a bit wierd!

  2. ok, i'll admit it, i don't really know what a kenyan hill session really is but yours and uc's enthusims is winning me over! is it just up and down but being consistent or varying speed?
