Hill session at Hope, Derbyshire. Followed a route recommended by VR coach Mikk. From Cheshire Cheese pub on Edale Road to the top of Lose Hill.
It was cold and misty. The slopes were slippy and muddy. I’d have been better in my inov8 fell shoes. Sunny at the top of my first rep.
Went back down as far as the stile at Lose Hill Lane, then 2 more reps. Had to walk parts that were very steep and slippy but pleased to get three full reps done. A slight wind got going and made reps 2 and 3 shrouded in mist. Loved it though, I’ll be back.
