After a couple of days rest (I was a bit sore on Monday after the race!) I was ready to head out again and organised to run with fellow HKUST runner, Willie. It'd been a while since we were last able to run together so I was quite keen to show him my new-est, best-est route - the Little Hawaii Trail! I did warn him that it was going to be a rather hard (but very scenic!) run, but I think he was surprised just how tortuous the route really is!
Just getting onto the trail. Bright overhead sun, but cool air temps and a lot of shade made for wonderful conditions.
Looking back across my little courage tester
Almost at the waterfall, preparing for the final battle
Major difficulties over, this trail winds towards the road before a couple of tame hills and a long descent to HKUST
Although my legs were burning on the steep uphill sections (I don't think that'll ever change), I was feeling great throughout the run and recovered fast after each hill. The route has never felt easier!
I'm looking forward to stepping things up and trying to pick up a bit of pace before my January half-marathon.
See you in the hills!
