85 min out and back to a town called Ashinoya, which sits at 850m elevation vs Gora at 550m. Same thematic as yesterday, a steep 0-2km (15-20 degrees type incline) followed by consistent grinding uphill. By the turn at 7.5km, there were some signs of fatigue in the quads.
To call this ‘enjoyment, off-season‘ running is a stretch. That said, I reckon the strength gained from these hills will serve me well. Given there is no flats around, I’m looking at 3 more days of this.
15.7km at 5:30s, 750m elevation change. Right foot was sore again, 5/10. At least it’s not getting worse.
