Hill Hunting (Week 2, Day 6)

Melksham, like many market towns of England, was formed by a wide flowing river (of of the many Avons), and as a result there are no big hills in town, and some areas are prone to minor flooding.

So hill training is a nightmare. There is a great hill on the Calne road (only about 10 minutes from me) but you'd be a fool to run up and down it in the dark. So I just went to the local park and went round it a few times (there is a slight incline so I'm letting meyself get away with it...)

Overall it was 3.8 miles in 36 minutes. Which is hopeless - and I can't even try to use hills as an excuse. Long run tomorrow!
