Hills today! I ran over to them (a two mile warm-up) and then did about four miles of hills. I ran up and down and back again, running on level ground for breaks, stopping for water and to take a picture of the bluebonnets (TX state flower) - will post one later.
I looked up towards the top of the hill when I ran uphill, rather than at the ground. I think that helped me to run straighter, not hunched over. I got the idea from the Cool Running forum thread I started reading before my run. Another perk to looking up is that the scenery changed at least a little when I looked up.
I started feeling tired and hot, checked my Garmin and saw that it was time to run home already. Suddenly, I felt much better. Hill workout and 8.5 mile run completed! : )
