Downhill running as a competitive sport---I'm in!


Oh poo. I am going to attempt some hills this weekend because I am sooo bad at them and my next race is hill-heavy. Very scared. Any tips???


Downhill running is harder on the quads and knees!

I for one LOVE HILLS! My favorite part of training, in fact doing repeats on the HILLS around my house!

Donna -- welcome to the Downhill Running team!

POM -- Hill training really does make them so much more do-able in the race, so it sounds like you are doing just the right thing. I have built up gradually when hill training -- picking a day then adding one hill repeat every week. That really helped though it didn't make me love them any more.

Emily -- I would like to test your theory about downhills by running A LOT more of them. :-) I do appreciate your positive attitude, though ... I may never love hills but we may reach some kind of understanding some day.


Hi! I just wanted to tell you that you are one incredibly entertaining individual, and a motivating influence on me as I attempt my own running quest: training myself to run the 10 Mile Cherry Blossom Run one month from now. http://stillwaitingfortherunnershigh.blogspot.com

I'll probably put you on my links, and I hope you get the chance to check out my blog and cheer me on sometime. :)
