This was a killer workout, for the hamstrings. But the trick is to look down. Focus on the ground below, take smaller steps. Your foot should fall right below your centre of gravity. The back should be straight, NO ARCH, keep your head tucked down.
Cooled down with jog and walk across the field a couple of times.
But I was not done !!
Put on some music, and finished a 1.5 mile easy peasy run on the track. Chilling cold !!
