During a run, when I'm tired and facing a big hill, I can usually motivate myself to push through the exhaustion and just make it up to the top of that hill. And the closer I get to the top, the harder I push to hit that crest.
But when I'm running on a long hill, so long that I can't even see the top... motivation becomes difficult. It's harder to give that extra push because I'm already so tired, and I know I'm going to be running hard for at least the forseeable future.
These days I constantly feel like I'm running on a hill with no crest in site. It varies in steepness, but I'm just constantly trying to catch my breath, and I never get a chance to just coast...
