Azatol Posted November 19, 2015 Report Share Posted November 19, 2015 Go, Ruthie! Hills are sooo intimidating! There's one that I've mucked around a few times near the beginning but now I'm avoiding it because I am still working on endurance (and don't want to burn out my calves climbing the giant). Congrats on your success! My run schedule is odd. My Monday runs feel amazing (after the 2 day weekend), but I'm usually very tired/need recouping by on Tuesday (having run after a 2 day break). Then, I've been running on Wed, Thurs, and Fri with each run better than the last and feeling great. My body is weird Yep hills are scary at the start but I've actually grown to love them. What many people don't know is they are the magic elixir of running. It helps strengthen your legs, build better cardiovascular fitness which leads to increased natural speed. It's also the bane of many runners and a great place to catch up to and even pass faster runners who don't train on them. Good stuff Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
