Did a quick (for me) 10k to Congleton and back yesterday afternoon. 51 minutes (my best time for the particular route I took). The inclines kill me. I lose more time going up hills than I do making up time going down them.
Quick question, how often should you get new trainers? I haven't had these ones long but I've already done 100 miles (they still feel fine and comfortable).
Also, when training for a half, is it recommended you train all the way up to the actual distance (or should I be looking to run further? Or is less, within reason, ok?).
Hill repeats and leg strengthening in the gym will get you better up the hills.

Smashed by 10k PB tonight!!!
Did my usual Biddulph to Congleton route and took almost 2 minutes off my best time (I managed 49.21). Reasonably hilly too.
I think most of that time was made up on the inclines. I felt much better than usual on those stretches tonight. Maybe I'm starting to build a bit of strength, or maybe it was just one of those nights. Either way, it felt good.
