Hi I am after some advice on hills please and how best to incorporate them into a weekly routine. I graduated earlier this year but ended up not doing much for about six weeks over summer (just got out of the groove 😳), so now am running at least 3x per week to try and get fitness back. I try and do a 10k and a couple of 5k and have just downloaded an interval app to make those runs a bit more interesting.
When I feel a bit fitter I would like to give hills a go. Should I just find one and run up then jog/walk down? How do I know if it is too steep or not steep enough? I road run around my local area and am struggling to think of any big hills, but the mental block may be due to fear of looking strange running passed people's houses repeatedly!
