RBR Summer Mileage, Week 4, Day 4: Hill Workout, by RunBlogRun

We do hill workouts each week, on Thursdays. As you can see, it is a progressive workout, where we add more and more hill repeats and encourage you to focus on the uphill running. 

Cross country courses in the US vary. Some are flat as pancakes, and some have hills that are legendary. Course like Manhattan Invite and Mt.SAC make careers. Learn how to run hills wisely. 

Hill workouts can also take the place of speed work, especially when you are tired of track workouts. We will discuss that in another blog.



Thursday: Warmup, 1 mile, hill repeat, 5 repeats, 200 yards, uphill, 200 yards, jog downhill, 1 mile easy, cooldown. At bottom of hill, try four times 150 yards, jog back to the start. Keep the strideouts relaxed. Then, a nice cooldown.
