I am so excited to be back in action for this months runner’s workout round-up! I know you missed my advice last month when I was in Italy but, I feel like this is the perfect topic for me to come home to since I consider hill workouts my specialty.

Maybe it’s because I love the after effects of a hard effort. Maybe it’s because I live on a mountain or maybe it’s just because I know everyone else hates them but, I happen to love the hills. Love them. My coach has tried very hard to have me hate them, and has nearly succeeded, but when I’m on a hilly race course I’m always passing other competitors simply because, like my good friend Sarah (who is also part of this round up) I embrace the hills.

Make friends with the hills and you will achieve PRs beyond your wildest dreams. It’s a total cliche but they do, in fact, make you stronger.

I sometimes feel like I do constant hill work so I had several favorite workouts to chose from. I finally landed on this one because anyone can do it and, if you don’t live in a hilly area, you can mimic this pretty easily on a treadmill. It’s a hill fartlek workout of sorts.

Speaking of hills, I will see you back here on Friday when I post my triathlon race recap from this past weekend. It was another crazy race with a completely shocking outcome…and a neck burn. You won’t want to miss it.

Do you hate the hills?

Do you only do repeats when you have a hilly race or as part of your workout?
