Hi! I am training for my second marathon, going for Amsterdam again this October. I live in the very flat Netherlands and as a result am really not used to hill running. Just arrived on family holiday to a very hilly region of Tuscany in the midst of training and need to fit in a 16, a 20 and a 22 while I'm here and want to avoid the mistakes I've made in a similar position last year.
Previously I've just tried to continue training and end up getting so badly injured I've had to cancel races. So any advice here? Should I cut down my mileage? Or do lots of shorter run? Or run for the same length of time I would usually for these distances but not worry if I've not done the full thing (ie go by time not distance). Any thoughts?
This race is a really important one to me for various reasons, so I really want to make sure I don't jeopardise it.
