Repeat After Me

Want to torch calories?  Become a stronger runner?  Want a kick-butt workout but don’t have a lot of time?  Then get yourself off the flats and hit the hills for some good old fashioned hill repeats!

Hill repeats are hard.  There’s no sugar-coating it.  You’ll be uncomfortable (read:  miserable) as  you crank up the hill but you will feel like a rockstar when you are done.   This workout can be done whether you are a walker or runner!

All you need are running shoes and a nice long hill.

  • Start with a 10-15 minute warm up.
  • Run (or walk) to the top of the hill (ideally it should take you 2-3 minutes to reach the top).
  • Easy jog back down to the base of the hill
  • Here’s the trick:  REPEAT running (or walking) up and jogging back down the hill 3 or 4 times.
  • Bring it on home with a 10 minute cool down

Try this once or twice a week for optimal results.

Now go run!
