OK, so it was more of a grind to the summit - it was bloody steep come the end. I was just outside the hour (21s outside) which was a bit disappointing - actually it pissed me right off but I won't mention that. It gives me a spur for next week though, when I will definitely break the hour. The throat is a lot better today, still a little sore and the deep breathing didn't help but I suppose all in all it was an acceptable day at the office.
As proof of the run here are a few photos from the summit - there's even a bit of snow left over from the winter - brrrrhhh.
Thought for the day: Blessed are they who can laugh at themselves for they shall never cease to be amused (I'm sorted then).
