First of all: Alinda brought this to my attention.
Guess I’m famous 🙂 …. this website is the announcement of the ladies run for this year which I ran last year September. If you scroll to the bottom of the site, the picture on the right: that’s me.
I’m glad my face isn’t on it, otherwise I couldn’t walk on the streets anymore without being recognized LOL.
I need your thoughts (again) on something.
Where I live it’s all flat which means I never do hill training. There’s not even a bridge nearby that I could use for hill training. I have planned to do a 15K in November but this race has hills (7 to be exact). I’ve read an article this week on the Dutch Runners World website that if you didn’t have hills to train on, you could do hill training on the treadmill.
And we all know how much I love the dreadmill! But I keep thinking about this. I have two short run of 2 or 3 miles in my schedule every week. I’m thinking about doing one of those on the treadmill in my gym and do it with an incline or hills program. Maybe 2 or 3 miles isn’t much but if I do it every week I might have less troubles at that race in November.
What do you think? Good idea? If you live in a flat area, do you do hills training or not? And if you do: how?
This morning at 5.30 am I had a short run to do. There’s not much to say about this run except that it went very well and was a good run..
Weather: dry, dark, not much wind, -1C (30 degrees)
Distance: 4.8 K / 3 miles
Average time: 7:05 /km
Average speed: 8.5 km/hour
Last song on Ipod before finish: Bon Jovi – Give me something for the pain.
