One thing I haven’t quite figured out how to effectively account for or train for is the significant downhill portion of the course. Being able to take advantage of it without ruining the quads for the uphill is something I’ve wondered about so I posted a question on the keepaustinrunning.org site.
Amy posted a link to a nice article and Gundi posted a response that I found useful. I did run the 3M part of my relay at my MGP. I didn’t feel my quads as much as I did other parts of my body so I guess I need to start focusing the downhill part of my runs moving forward.
