Hill Running Workout 9 #hillwod



A downhill workout, really??? YES! Today’s it’s all about the DOWN … well, at least until the bonus UP HILL part. This one is about overspeed training, while also offering a chance to focus on efficient downhill form.





Notes from Jeff’s test run of this Hill Workout: I did this one in Richterswil, Switzerland on a hilly street next to my home. I used a section of the road that started with a grade around 4% and reached 8% at the steepest (by interval 8). Temps were pleasant and it was sunny today. My primary focus on the downhill intervals was to visualize that I was on a bike, spinning fast and smooth. It worked very well for me. 


Have a great hill workout!
