Hill/trail running.


Back to the hills today. A nice steady session at Castlehackett. A great course for a bit of hill training and good shelter from those nasty hail showers. Another week down and I think a nice balance of rest and training was achieved. Now for a nice dinner and chill for the evening.

Hill Training Castlehackett

A crazy wet and windy day today so our plans of a hike up Crough Patrick and a cycle around Maum were finished early on. We hit for our local hill at Castlehackett. 1hour and 6 minutes later the legs are heavy after some tough hill training. 3-5 minute steep hill climbs and quick downhills make this course perfect for the trail runner/adventure racer. I didnt bring phone with the awful weather but will photograph this course on my next visit.
