Change up your fitness routine with hill training. Walking, running, or biking hills is a great way to tweak your workouts and make them fresh and fun!
Hill Training Rules:
- Start at a slower pace than normal and always be able to say at least 4 words without catching your breath.
- Keep your eyes straight ahead. Don’t tilt your head up or look down at your feet.
- With elbows bent, swing arms and use more power as you swing back to help “push” you up the hill.
- Only run downhill if you can do it with control. You shouldn’t be pounding the pavement. Stay light on your feet – otherwise, walk!
Need a hill to train on? Try Lybecker DR NW in Gig Harbor. It’s a quick one – but steep (1 mile roundtrip).
