So I am almost finished with week 2! I have been able to push myself through even when I want to stop and walk thus far, but... I have a treadmill and will use it on rainy/cold days, but I often forego the treadmill for the great outdoors since the weather is perfect here right now. Problem is, where I live is very rural with several hills that span anywhere from 200 to 350 ft in elevation (thank you runkeeper which works perfectly running at the same time as this app ;) so I'm afraid that while it is extremely difficult to push through jogging up those hills now, next week will be near impossible for me. Anyone else have these issues? I feel like the elevation will make me stronger, I'm just not sure that it's the best way to succeed with this particular program... Any suggestions?

Hi There to you and Welcome!

 

I live at 5300ft, which is high, so I am used to the hills.   Here is what you can do when you feel great,  Try and run up it, if not, go a little slower if you have to, or walk up.  

 

Sometimes when I am crazy, I will run up it backwards or sideways just to shock my body.  Once you can do it, you will love it..  Lots of hills here!

 

Good luck and proud of you!
