The trail itself was not completely flat, so it did provide me with some modest hills to train on. I took the last two days off, which enabled me to run in the daylight today.

In addition, the 2k limit seems to be the perfect distance to avoid any embarrassing bowel-related problems. The run was completely panic-free. I will endeavour to make this my first of three runs over the next seven days. My overall time was 16:44, certainly not my best, and likely hindered by my picture-taking and hiking up of my lulus, but I will work on beating this time over my next few runs. Even though I cannot increase my distance, I can at the very least increase the speed at which I run it!
