Best Running Tips Newsletter, Issue #013 -- Hills
April 14, 2009
Welcome to the Best Running Tips Newsletter !
In previous issues of this newsletter I have mentioned that running in
Australia is different to running in Holland, where I am originally
Holland is extremely flat.
Compared to that every run in Australia is hilly.
In the beginning this made running a lot harder for
me. I am sure you would experience the same thing. However, as you do
it more and more it becomes easier.
Your legs get stronger.
You know better how to run on hills.
There is a whole psychological aspect to conquering hills as well...
One of my main runs includes a continuous climb of about 30-35 minutes.
Not so steep, but consistently up. Talk about the psychological aspect
of running... it is a real killer. I love it... :)
After my last race, which involved a few hills as well I was once again
convinced that hill running is an incredibly good exercise.
I flew up those hills... well, maybe I didn't exactly but I went a lot
faster than many of my fellow competitors...
I have recently added a first page to Best Running Tips about hill
running. I hope it helps you conquer the hills as
well and helps you become a faster runner.

HOT TIP: SPECIAL COUPON CODES
I consider part of my ongoing service to you to make you aware of
At the moment there are several specials that may interest you.
I might create a separate section on the website for this so we make
sure that you do not miss out on any discounts that may apply in
different running webstores.
First of all, there is a cool 15% discount
available on any heart rate monitor you get from HealthCheckSystems.com.
Just use coupon code: MOTHER when getting the heart
Why mother? The special runs until Mother's Day!

good range of special footwear as well, including some running shoes.

NEW ON THE SITE
I have been quite busy in the last two months, part of the reason why
you did not receive an update last month. I have added I'd say about
40-50 new pages. Many of them are product reviews, answers to questions
from readers and the beginning of a marathoning and diet section.
Special mentions for the following pages:
Marathon Training Tips
Also check out reviews of some special shoes like Newton
shoes. Another interesting shoe brand is Ryka which
only makes shoes for ladies. Check out a review here.
And of course you keep on supplying me with great questions via the Running
Training Helpline or other Q&A areas on the site.

torn ACL, increasing
stamina or multiple
