Tip for running up and down hills.

Icon_Runners_MillaSagradaFamilia2005

When running up a hill, just as your stride turnover should remain unchanged, from running on the flat, so too should your breathing.  If you find you are breathing more heavily, then you are probably running too fast. As you go over the brow of a hill, don’t accelerate suddenly but remain total control over your running, easing into a faster pace, with longer strides.
