road to the half marathon: training week 8

With 4 weeks to go until race day, it’s all downhill from here, literally! This week I took a recommendation from one of our ambassadors to incorporate hills into my short runs and see how my long run felt from there. Let’s be honest, running uphill is probably my least favourite activity on the planet. It burns and it feels like I am moving at a glacial pace. Achy arthritic toes and all, I mapped out “hilly” runs on the Daily Mile, and loaded a fresh playlist to conquer these “helpful” peaks throughout my week and did just that.
