I live in a hilly area. To avoid them, I would need to drive somewhere else, or run laps around a small parking lot over and over and over (which would drive me batty). I happen to live at the low point in the hills, so pretty much every direction is up first, and down heading back. So here's the problem: I am having a hard time running up the hills in the first part of the run. Is it "cheating" to walk up them first and start running from the top, heading back down? Should I trudge up the hill at a job even if I can't continue, so I am not only able to run downhill? Or is there a better way?
