Hill Running Workout 11 #hillwod

Just one interval today, but it’s a LONG one! It’s full time trial mode as you storm up a hill or a set of stairs for 11 MINUTES. That’s enough time to enter the hurt locker and train your mental toughness skills in addition to stamina.




Notes from Jeff’s test run of this HWOD: I did this one in Richterswil, Switzerland on a hilly street next to my home, but starting much lower than usual. I found myself getting too tense about 3 minutes in, so while I kept the pace high, my mantra become “”relax”” until the last 2min. Then I spotted a target and wanted full gas until I passed it. It’s a grueling 11 minutes, but it feels great when you maintain the intensity and finish strong! Use this workout to reinforce proper technique on top of the conditioning focus. In the test WOD, I covered 1.7KM (just over a mile) with 154m (500 feet) of elevation gain on inclines ranging from 4% to 15%. Here’s the Strava link.


Have a great hill workout!
