F2D - I didn't think about box hill at all, just doing all my running in Richmond park. Do you mean the ZigZag? I cycled it a lot in my triathlon days. Also, from Westhumble (the box hill train stop), when turning left there is a good hill, did it last year for the green belt relay and was last with none in sight after less than 2 miles
Anyway, as regard to hills, the Lindsey Parry podcast spoke about it today. Saying 5% on a treadmill is a good simulation. I haven't been on on win years but was in the gym today, so I just put it on 5 and had a go, it didn't feel like anything, but I didn't run, just walked a bit. So either the scale isn't percentage or I got the podcast information wrong.
I hope everyones training is going well. I am coming out of a down week myself, having been flying previously in Watford and Bramley. Good to get the stupid phases out of the way early.
