breathwork and movement efficiency to control HR

    i noticed that paying attention to breathing while uphill and downhill session helps a lot with maintaining HR below aet for zone 2 training (hiking steep hill and running back down)

    but for trail running, it is very difficult to maintain zone 2 for even for slightly uphill running so i ended up walking on uphill and running on flat and downhill.

    i love trail running and would love to incorporate it in my level 2 training as much as possible instead of just running on flat and walking on slope (which is boring)

    is there any training or references to breathwork and movement efficiency/techniques for uphill training?

    Hi ,

    As soon as you are improving your aerobic capacity, gradually you are going to run more and walk less , even on the incline.
    Walking more at the begging is also a plus and not a minus , because you have less impacts and joints and muscles don’t suffer so much and have time to adapt to the volumes .

    Cheers
