About to go out running on the hills in preparation for the Himalyan 100! Thanks Noel, good tips and reminders of why it's great to run them.

Just remember not to look down too much while you're going uphill and watching your feet in the woods - I did, and ended up knocking myself out on an overhanging tree branch, landing on my knee [already weakened by something-or-other] and doing further damage! 3 weeks later and I still can't run!

Oh, and look out for roots! They have a habit of jumping up when you least expect it, resulting in a land in the brambles with a stupid terrier looking down at you!

I'm now looking forward to fixing my knee and tackling the hills again, so will be keeping an eye on this article!
