This is RunBlogRun Spring Training for the Middle Distances, Week 4, day 4.
Hill training is a way to develop speed and strength while keeping you off the track.
Our workout for today is to warm up slowly, then 15 minutes moderate pace, 6 x 100m uphill, 15 minutes moderate pace, 6 x 150m uphill, 15 minutes moderate pace, 6 x 200 meter uphill, slow, 15-20 minute cooldown.
In speaking with Noah and Josephus Lyles this winter, they told me on how much they used hills to build their strength over the winter.
