Have been busy deconstructing my kitchen today ready for a new one to go in in a few weeks, so didn't get out for a long run today.
Instead, tonight I took the poles for a test drive. Having got the wrong size ones to begin with (110cm) I took the new ones (123cm) for a spin.
Did 3 climbs of the Chevin> Thought they were great, really boosting the legs on the climbs and light enough to carry on the returns downhill.
Knee heald up ok too :)
