Hill reps help promote strength speed power and cardiovascular fitness.

Many runners only go on slow runs, staying away from speed work. While easy aerobic running is the basis of a training program, athletes can’t run slowly all of the time. Running slow all the time will just make you a slow runner. Once runners have a solid aerobic base of miles behind them, they need to incorporate faster workouts into their training program. Training using the whole continuum of paces, from slow running speeds to very fast speeds enhances both aerobic and anaerobic abilities. Fartleks, lactic threshold, intervals, and hill reps all can help runners learn a range of speeds and get FASTER.
