The only way to get better at hills is to do more hills - do them by yourself where you don't have to feel like you have to keep up with anyone else - have you tried hill repeats? I have been finding trail running by myself lots of fun - really enjoying it!
Hey all - have been quietly plodding along in the background had a lovely 10k event near me - full of mud and I figured out I'm capable of running down hill quite fast
Just a wee run this morning all sorts of not feeling it - it was meant to be a tempo run but the elastic in the undies going was the last straw so more like a fartlek long run tomorrow 16 ish km in them there hills.
MC and CJ enjoy yourselves out there! MC good call re the family time
