Hi. I went out today and did 10K on a flat course in just over 46mins, which I was pleased with. The route is here. A reminder that I did a hilly course in just over 49mins in just under 1 week ago.
A few notes:
- Over the course of the 10K, this is over 30sec/mile quicker than the hilly route.
- The max elevation on the hilly route is 116ft, whilst on the flat route it's 25ft.
- The flat 10k is basically 6 and a bit times around a course, and it was fairly consistent. 2 times around the course is included in the hilly route.
- I was equally tired at the end of both, but I feel I recovered quicker after the flat course.
So, any ideas how to improve on the hilly course? Or is it simply a case of "do more hills"? If so, what type of hill training would be recommended?
