Going up hills keep your steps short with your feet landing under the centre of gravity. I use a chi technique for running up hills which I find really effective. It also relies on using your arms to pull you up - it looks a bit odd like you are trying to punch yourself on your chin and its important to keep your shoulders down. Going up hills can take it out of you so you may need to adjust your pacing to compensate.

Some people say keep your eyes on the horizon others say its best to focus on a spot in front of you so you don't get put off by how far your have to go.

Coming down hills you can stride out a bit but watch those knees and quads.

Pain in your bum quite common especially amongst us women - a small muscle in your backside called the piriformis can get a bit tight. It normal during the last week before your race to cut back on training a little bit to save energy for actual race day and also reduce the risk of injury as well - there is nothing worse than training really hard for a race and then picking up an injury at the last minute.

I'm doing my second half next but I'm not as fast as you - good luck.
