Running Hexham

Causey Hill

Back to the traditional Tuesday night runouts, this time Causey Hill. The pull up from the Wentworth leisure centre in Hexham is unforgiving. Halfway up the hill at one of the natural stops, a stile, I had to lie down or else I’d have fallen over, light headed and dizzy. I can only assume that I’m de-hydrated and lacking energy despite eating and drinking; I thought enough; today.

A brief rest and a steady pace up to the top of the hill and I’m managing, the down hill is easy one you get into a stride. Then the long return run, up again and again before the long run back through to Hexham’s main street and back to the Wentworth Leisure Centre. 6.33 miles 5.2mph In this heat that’s enough for now!
