running and other things

I ran today. I actually had a really good run this morning and I'm planning on having another good run tomorrow morning. I ran just over 5k today.

I'm still taking the advice about "pushing off with every step" and "lifting my knees" when I run up hill. I think running hills over the weekend helped me figure out how to swing my arms more efficiently more than anything it did for my legs.

The advice about running down hill is basically that my legs can take a beating going down hill (and running up hill is actually easier on joints and muscles). Basically I'm supposed to lean forward as far as I can. I tried it this morning. All hunched over with my arms dragging low I may have looked like a gorilla.
