  1. Great Race, Great Write up, And i think I speak for 99% of the men in the world when i say that there is no shame in being passed by you!

  2. Hi Ellie,

    I live in London so struggle for hill training. What kind of treadmill sessions do you do to prep for the hills?


  3. Ed - my training is very much trial and error but the treadmill I use can go to max 15% incline, so I was doing sessions of maybe 25mins at a slow running pace that I would sustain for that long, 5 min break and then repeat. I would also do lesser inclines at faster speed but also for 25mins or so at a time to practice more runnable hills. I occasionally do traditional hill workouts i.e. shorter (few mins) at pace I can only sustain for 2 to 5 mins, then rest, then repeat a few times. Only thing lacking really with a treadmill is you cannot mimic downhill running and the pounding that gives on the quads. Hope that is of help :)
