Hey guys, just looking for some opinions on the best way to tackle moderate downhills - at the moment I'm alternating between shortening my stride and quickening my pace to counter the additional…Continue

So, last week I set out on my Cool Impossible and kind of, sort of achieved... something. I don't mean to spoil the end of this post, but I set out to run 130 miles and ended up running 75 and I'm happy with that :)

Since I ran the 44 miles of my last post back in May, I've been managing to keep up a pretty consistent amount of running and…Continue
