It was even boggier this time on the hills, on the way up I nearly lost a shoe a couple of times but even when it might have been quicker walking I kept plodding away. My slowest split was on this section, 12:20 min/mile (9seconds faster than last week). On the way down the hill my watched beeped at me, my heart rate was over 180bom, not a suprise it was hard work as my feet kept disapearing into the bog and I was trying to ignore it and actually run faster downhill than uphill - I am rubbish on the downhills.
The last mile or so was really hard, this is where having the garmin came into its own as I could see my average pace coming down as I kept pushing - slowly but coming down. So I kept pushing, managing the last split in 9;ao min/mile pace.
