Pretty happy with this! It was Hillsborough Parkrun’s 4th birthday, and as a result we ran it backwards. I figured this was a good opportunity to push my PB a bit, as with the reverse direction, the main downhill section is a lot longer (and consequently, the uphill steeper and shorter!) so in theory pushing hard on that long down hill should buy me seconds as long as I can push though the hill pain!
And I did. Phew.
I didn’t have much left at the finish, but as it was the 4th birthday, there was cake! Hurrah!
