I did my long slow run this morning; 22 miles; and I felt pretty good till I hit mile 11 and then my thighs started hurting. There's lots of hills around here and I think my legs were still tired from my mid-week running, but going downhill was a nighmare.
Every step going downhill really hurt my thighs and I tried all sorts of slightly different running forms to find what was best.
But I was wondering, is there a way of toughening up my thighs so I can chuck myself down these hills, rather than going down them gingerly 'cos they hurt badly?
Or is it a case of being patient and keep training?
