  • Some great ideas thank you

  • thats amazing and made me smile , what determination, you deserve and will succeed

  • Hills are just hard and if you're not used used to them they do make your legs hurt, even slight inclines ! Either practice little ones until you can do them or avoid them. Well done on your progress so far, surprised you haven't worn your floor out though...

  • Little steps on the hills! You need to really shorten your stride length and work your arms (think imitation of Thomas the steam engine!!). The small steps will make it feel like you are going SO slow, but slow is just fine. Good luck, let us know how you get on.
