    More About Hill Runs

    Including hill runs in your training is a great way to build the stamina needed to complete the Half Marathon Distance.

    Here's how:
    • Lean slightly into the hill

    • Keep your abs and back strong

    • Focus your attention just a few feet in front of you

    • Shorten your arm swing and consciously pump those arms – as always the arms dictate your turnover and pace

    • Shorten your leg stride with small, quick steps

    • Land on the balls of your feet and consciously lift your knees as quickly as possible when your foot touches the ground

    • Be patient. One step at at time. Regardless of whether you run or walk up, getting to the top is a great confidence booster.

  • Freedom Friday

    Take the day off.
