Consistency is the key!

Tracking is my best friend and worst enemy. It's the hardest part of weight loss for me, yet when I do it... I win. You'd think that would motivate me, but alas it appears not. After many, many, many years of trying on my own, I became very frustrated. I had lost about 30 lbs on my own, but only by working out three hours a day and rarely being satisfied. On the suggestion of a friend, I started working with my doctor and a nutritionist. I had Gastric sleeve surgery in June of 2013.

Heya - I have a question ... when doing hills, are you running up it at a 'normal' speed? Or are you supposed to try to sprint up the hills?

Yesterday I did hills. It was a 1/4 mile up and about a 5-6% grade.

I would run up normally, then run down at a 'leisurely' pace.

But that was the first time. The next 3 times got slower and slower ... the last run up I had to rest at one point. Is that normal? Am I doing hills correctly?
