Speedwork Sessions #25 Get Over It

Hills. Every runner loves to hate them.

Hills, however, aren’t all that bad.  As the saying goes.  Hills are speedwork in disguise.

This week’s speedwork session is about embracing those hilly climbs.

The magic of the hills is keeping pace with elevation.  This combination alone helps you make you a stronger runner.  That way when you do encounter a hill during an event you can tackle it head-on.  I mean it is just a hill, get over it!
