If I get my missus to agree to me doing this run, stagger, walk, I'm already dreading the hills

Missus reckons hills are character building. Who's she kidding? She doesn't have to run them

I run hills regularly. You can always *jog* the hills

I jog the flat bits, I was hoping to get a piggy back ride up the hills.

Hills are:

  1. Speed training in disguise.
  2. The best way while racing, to make new friends slow walking encourages chatting.
  3. Theres a good view at the top of every hill guaranteed 
  4. The chance a dusky maiden/hunk from St.Johns will give mouth to mouth at the top
  5. Theres a downhill.
We have several downhill that make run down shouting"WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE" the one at Lyons Gate is ACE

And wave your arms wildly while shouting 'wooooooooooohooooioooooooooooo"

I'm in for this one - now here's hoping we can stay in our friends' seaside retreat in Fortuneswell that weekend.

Cake - our southern hills are a bit namby-pamby, but them Dorset apples produce a very decent pint

I like hills too *decides not to admit she hasn't run more than 2 miles for longer than she can remember. It's not much further than that anyway, is it? *

you have 21 weeks of training increase your long runs by 1.5 miles per week 

Bingo............marathon distance in no time

21 weeks? That's no time at all. Lucky I'm doing an HM on 3rd March then.
