When it comes to running in Tbilisi flat is an abstract concept. Last week I ran my usual route and my knee was quite sore at the end after descending a very steep street. This week I decided to go in the counter clockwise, and also head further up into the hills along the road, rather than run along the trail the entire route. After 1 km I started uphill and finished about 4 km later. It was a great 15 km loop and much easier, even though I had several km of downhill sections where I was clocking 6 minute miles. Had to focus on technique – fast turnover – to be sure I didn’t injure myself. A good workout so I’ll remember that one in the future.
