Bridge run training series "Running Up hill"


If you have been training for the upcoming Bridge run over the past few months I wanted to give a few tips about running up hill which may help make it easier for you during the race. 

Try to slightly lean forward into the up slope as you run up the bridge. Running shorter strides makes your running technique more efficient. Keep your head and eyes focused ahead, but not all the way up. Make sure you don't lean over at the waist which may cause strain on the lower back and overworks the hamstrings. When you run up hill on the bridge try to stand tall which will engage your glutes to help power you up more efficiently.

Lastly it is very important to get out over the next few weeks and do some practice runs on the bridge which will help you to get used to running on such a big incline and help to decrease the chance of injury.
