Bring on the hills


When I started this app I doubted I had the stamina to run 1 minuet let alone 20 minuets. Then when I’d conked that fear I doubted I could ever run up hill so only picked routes on the flat. This morning I had no choice but to conker that fear as I’m on holiday in Scotland and hills are everywhere. I don’t know why I doubt myself so much. ( Can’t believe i packed my running stuff and went running at 6.30 in the morning while on holiday). I’ve come along way in such a short time.

Great stuff, hills are there to be run over, and to be doing that already is very impressive, especially as it’s not your usual terrain.




I avoid hills like the respect to you for conquering your fear and forcing your brain to acknowledge you are a runner for keeps!!!

🏅very very well done to you!💪💪

My very unfit husband said it was more of an incline than a hill but it went up and down so, in my book it was a hill. What do none runners know about anything.

Woohoo that’s super! I love that you get up early to run on your holiday and conquer your hill phobia too. 🏞
