Dunn Tire Mountain Goat Run Training Tip #1

Get Your Mind Right


Your mental state can affect a lot of things and how you feel running up and down hills is one of them. If you look at an upcoming hill with fear and intimidation then you are going to struggle right from the start. Your mental energy can actually drain your physical energy because you have that negative or fearful attitude toward hills.


The solution is to tackle hills as frequently as possible during training and casual runs. The more exposure you have to hills and the more strategies you have to get through the intense slopes, the less intimidating they will feel when you come up to them during a race.

Confront the fear now so you have positive energy pushing you along when hills pop up during race terrain.
