when running uphill, there is a secret that can actually PULL you up in a much easier way than all the huffing and puffing and fear of going uphill :) LEAN IN toward the hill just a LITTLE way until you FEEL your center of gravity about to cause you to fall FLAT on your face :) DO NOT FALL :) but DO tiptoe up the hill as you balance your weight, this takes a LOT of pressure off your leg muscles, NOT forcing them to bear ALL the pressure of PUSHING you up the hill, but allowing your legs to relax
also since most hills have a downside :) do the OPPOSITE while going down hill, LEAN back slightly and imagine you are about to sit on a high stool just enough to take some pressure off your leg muscles, so SIT on the imaginary high chair by leaning back VERY slightly, and bending knees slightly
