Do you like hills?

Updated: Jul 27, 2020


Do you like hills? Are you eager to run up one and then the next? Or do you loathe the thought of yet another hill? Personally, I’ve never met a hill that I didn’t like. Without fail I always get a big smile, laugh out loud, and mutter, “Here we go, ha!” For training/everyday runs: I run the hills and a bit over the top, and then keep going if I can. I’ll have to try and find the podcast but it told me that this is a great way to build endurance and a low chance of injury. They even went so far as saying to walk the flats and downhills to recover, just always run the hills. For races: I still hike/run the hills accordingly depending on a variety of factors: height/distance of hill, distance of race, conditioning (don’t sell yourself short but be honest and realistic), etc. Technique wise: This will vary. For myself I keep a relatively high cadence but shorter stride. I also zig zag my way up a hill (and down). Doing this going up it makes it easier and I can run faster while expelling less energy. Downhill it helps control my speed and maintain form. #trailrunners #trailrunninglife #ultrarunner #plantbasedrunner #plantbasedathlete #veganultrarunner #plantpoweredathlete #plantpoweredultrarunner #runadventures #hillrun #hillrunning #runupthathill #vegan #trailrunning #running #hillclimb #plantpowered #pushyourself #pushyourlimits #hilltraining #searchforvert #lovehills #hillrepeats #ultrarunning #plantbasedultrarunner #endurancetraining #puffingbilly #belgravevic #belgravevictoria #dandenongranges
