I struggled with the same thing when we lived in the NW corner of CT. The only solution for me was to hop in my car and drive to an area that was a little flatter.

I couldn't really ride my bike or run/walk anywhere from my front door because it was so hilly.

Hi,
I am starting today but I am worried about the hills! You cannot avoid them in the area I live in. I have selected the least hilly road to do my run on but it is still a hiil- just not as steep as the others!
I really don't want to use this as an excuse to not make the progress I should (typical me) but I also don't want to push myself too hard because of the extra effort needed to run up hills/ shin splints from running down hills.

Any advice?

Thanks
