The hill is off my running trail, near the 2-mile mark. The recap:
mile one: 10:36
mile two: 10:26
then backtrack about 1/4 mile to get to the hill: 3:49
(And here is where it dawned on me that I am not walking, I am transitioning!!! Sort of like childbirth. Or triathaloning.):
T-1!!!! Walk down steep path to get to the place where I run up the 1/2 mile long hill: 1:28
Run up hill: 5: 15 (Notice new blister developing, in new place ... $#!@!%)
T-2!!!! Walk at top of hill to catch breath: 1:05
Run down hill: 4:40
T-3!!!! Walk back up to trail, sit down, water: 2:33
Run to next mile marker: 1:25
T-4!!! Transition back 1.5 miles: 17:54
Overall: 5 miles in 59:00
Mood: Foul, foul, foul. New blister, plus headache. Am now hobbling.
Today: See podiatrist. Threaten him.
