Make that 2nd to last - thanks for sharing...too bad my state's highest elevation is the garbage dump.

It is usually recommended that you do a "hill workout" once weekly (or every 2-3 weeks). You can do drills such as: find a hill (or run with several ups and downs) that will take you approximately 90 seconds to run up.

Run up 90 seconds, then jog slowly down. Repeat 6-8 times.

It works!

Crumbs, funny you should say that. My nephews' cross country team actually has to train at the dump because it's the only hilly place around!

When I was in that outside bootcamp, our trainer was really big on hill running. We'd sprint up, walk down a few times, then he'd have us walk up and run down. I hated them, but they worked!

There's a "hill run" as part of my Fitness Magazine 1/2 marathon training. I just thought it was to help with endurance. I didn't realize it would make me Speedy Shelley. Geez! What was I thinkin'!?
