Hallowed Hills…….

ghostOk, ok. So maybe a cemetery isn’t the best of places to do a hill session. But needs must. I haven’t done a hill session since I very first picked up my knee injury,  as hills seemed to aggravate it. Fast forward 18 months and here I was about to embark on my first hill sprints – but where to go? My usual hills are in full view of the passing public, I really didn’t want to have an audience as:

  • I wasn’t really sure how the knee would hold up, and
  • I didn’t want every man and his dog seeing me huffing and puffing and basically dying.

So it had to be plan B, a nice wee hill in the middle of the old cemetery -my only audience would be dead people………. Or so I thought. How wrong can you be? I never realised that at 4 o’clock  on a Monday the place would be so busy, the last burial is at three thirty and looking at the age of some of these headstone that was 40 years ago, just my luck to pick visiting day. Except they didn’t seem to be visiting anyone, I passed the same dog walker 3 times, one woman turned up in one car and drove off in another (nudge, nudge, wink,wink) the local polish community seem to have mis-translated the word cemetry and thought they were in the pub and two young lads on scooters clearly wanted to use the same hill as me -I saw it first!!

Still it all worked out fine in the end ,in fact I was dead chuffed (sorry shit joke but it is Monday!) I managed 2 sets of 4 (small) hills with a 30 second rest in between with a 1.4 mile warm up and cool down. No niggles yet, this comeback is certainly here to stay!
