13 minutes to the high point,
25 to the bridge at Machen,
53 back to the starting point
That's one minute faster overall. I started up the hill quite well but got a bit slower once I'd passed the edge of the village. Since the route is quite hilly I try to be careful on the steeper bits, particularly the down-hill bits. I tried to concentrate on getting the speed up on the flatter bits ... with only limited success. I'll be running this circuit again on Friday night, I think, so we'll see how fast I manage that.
My application for the New York marathon got through the draw! So I'll be over there in November to see the trees in fall and have a short jog :)
