The hills are alive with the sound of Ju Ju

The hills are alive with the sound of Ju Ju

Huffing and puffing as she climbs them...!!!

I did it!! I managed to achieve my goal of running up 3000 metres for July. I am really pleased with myself as that was hard work... I think for August I will focus on my speed... No more hills for a while!!!!

I made a medal from ferns which looks really daft!

My tips on doing this are:

Take it slowly!

Run up steep bits on the balls of your feet

Look after your Achilles!!

The 10% rule applies to elevation too

Walk breaks are great to get the HR down

Enjoy the view...!!!

thats pretty good going i have never got anywhere near the height challanges. To do the same again you would have to go up and down Snowdon 3 times or Ben Nevis 2 and a bit times or go up Snowdon, Ben Nevis and Scaffell pike and you would do the same amount.

Well done JJ, it's always great to knock off a challenge like that. I have to say I have no idea how much elevation I do in a month.

That's a good thing as I've become a bit unhealthily obsessed with how much I can climb in a run, mainly as most of my trail runs are quite hilly!!!

Congratulations JJ, great achievement.

Well done! Good to have a challenging project and get it ticked off. (From someone who has become an expert in finding flat places in hilly country... time I embraced the contours really isn't it?)
