High 5: Running Up Hill
This week we cover the technique you need to maintain when running up hill.
1. Keep leaning forward with your hips up.
2. Keep cadence high.
3. Short steps - donâ��t try to lift stride length when you want to go fast.
4. Keep good knee lift.
5. Maintain good rhythm, esp when the going gets tough.
Next week weâ��re going to cover running down hill.
What do you think the charge should be for entering a IM race? Is the price we pay fair?
