I have been running for nearly 2 years. I usually run 10k races, but haven't raced since Sept, and a combination of injury, weather, and general laziness has meant that I've cut down to one LSR of around 4-4.5 miles per week, with a bit of static bike during the week.
I have just, as mentioned, entered a 6 mile hill race. I have 5 weeks.... and the hills are pretty fierce. I only want to get round in one piece so how should I train during my remaining time? I can train outside 3x a week and do bike/other static exercise in the house.
Any help gratefully received! Thanks
on top of what Yorkshire Rob says I would up the resistance on the bike. Strong legs and CV will help you up the hills too.
Dont look at the top of the hill either... keep your head level and concentrate on the next 5-10 yards.
