Hill Reps x 6

Created a loop at Markeaton Park, Friday 15th January,

It covers 1 mile dead, with 210 feet of ascent per lap,

Tough little route, long drawn out climb to start, tricky little traverse and then small sharp climb and then descent through woodland, run into park is 1.5 miles warm up,

Then on with it, headtorch ready, lungs ready,

Felt really tired, long week at work, friday night

Did six laps, and managed to keep steady, but not race pace of 9.11, just a matter of doing some training i think,

Hey up

From Markeaton park there is a nice run to Duffield via Markeaton Stones, Vickerwood and Bunker hill in Quarndon.

Its Nearly all off road and it takes in part of the Wilmot Wander course.

All the best
