Friday’s Tip of the Week – Running Hills

All this talk about running hills and how difficult it is has me thinking, is there something that I should be doing to help me get up those doggone hills? Well, I turned to my best online friend…Google, and found this video “How to Run Hills with Coach Jenny Hadfield.”

Some of the tips she offers are:

  • Open your stride
  • Lean into it from your ankles
  • Land with your foot just behind your hips – rather than under your hips
  • Relax and let go and let gravity pull you down

I’m going to give it a try tomorrow and see how it goes. Hope this helps!
