Finally I made it to my hill again. Going up there had three purposes:
- get a vantage point and find The Chimney in the distance (can you spot it on the featured image?)
- increase strength (I don’t go to the gym and Lydiard says one needs strength and to do hills)
- increase cadence (running downhill like a Kenyan just rocks if your feet are strong enough)
I also change the music to play “Blues Brothers” and it worked! On Garmin it shows my average cadence ridiculously low, because I had to walk the steep parts, but it also colors the dots representing the steps. Red is bad and it goes up to purple! I reached purple today for the very first time 🙂 most of it was orange with some green, so it is working.
As a bonus for today, I want to show you The Wishing Stone!
It is on top of my hill and in the summer you can find kids (young and old) running around it to the top. It is supposed to make your wish come true. It is dated 1852 and of unknown origin.
