I climbed Mt Ainslie with Caroline again this morning. Lovely weather for it, cool but clear. I was panting and sweating but we got the the point where last week I felt I couldn't go any further and I really didn't feel that bad. Then Caroline made me sprint, twice. Just 10 or 20 seconds, but up a steep hill. I thought I was going to pass out or throw up. When we got right to the top I ran up the last dozen or so stairs. Time of 38 min 40 sec, about a 3 min improvement. We did the whole walk in the same total time as last week (1 hour 15 min) so we must have gone a little slower on the downslope. We both had a sore ankle and the downhill is hard on ankles and knees.
Not too bad an improvement for one week.
