I live at the bottom of a valley in rural Shropshire and all of my training is done on hills, it's un-avoidable. On leaving home I have a one mile up-hill warm-up.
But, it's really de-motivating me now. I often have to walk up the hills, my knees are sore and I can't seem to get any quicker. Im finding myself unable to face it.
Can anyone tell me how I can make the most of the hills? Any tips on making them work for me rather than feeling they are against me??
I am a relatively new runner, not very quick (10/11min miles) and am currently training for a half marathon. I do have access to a treadmill (but time to get to it is limited as I have 2 babies at home and limited childcare).
Any encouragement would be greatly appreciated thank you
