Saucony/RBR Summer Mileage Program, Week Five, Day Four: the Hills, from

The hill workout is held every Thursday in our program. The goal of the workout is to prepare you to run hills successfully. You will notice that we are giving you more hills and the workout is getting harder. 

Want to be successful running hills? Shorten your stride and pump your arms as you go up the hill. Do not look at the top of the hill,  look in front of you. Stay focused. The more you practice hills, the better you will become at running hills.
