Well not actually backwards but the reverse of a route I have become ‘used to’ running. Given the heat and the climbs I’m happy with my 4.3 miles in 33 minutes:

What made it interesting was how much harder it was doing it all completely in reverse; even so far as running around the parks in a clockwise rather than anti-clockwise direction. I don’t know if when I first ran the route my subconscious deliberately chose the ‘easiest’ route or if it was harder because….well lets face it, it is different.

Not the way to finish what was a hot run! Sadly no more runs until next week, Monday at the earliest, also no gym either so I’ll need to keep myself motivated….

Tell you what, if I do at least 4 miles on Monday then I can go for a beer afterwards….incentive sorted 🙂
