Winter and a hill but still smiling!
Conquering any gradient during a run is quite an exhausting challenge, but a rewarding one and definitely has great physiological benefits. Obviously one, being that you will run up hills better with some hill training. But there are lots of benefits, so don’t be fooled into thinking it’s a pointless training method because you haven’t got a Ben Nevis race on your to-do list.
Training sessions that vary are important for any runner. Your body adapts to the same schedule and the benefits to your muscles and cardiovascular system come to a halt if they get use to the same workout. Intensity is important. However the each individuals levels of intensity are just as important. Hill running for a conditioned runner will be slightly different to someone starting out.
For those who have taken part in our renowned hill sessions then once again you will be encouraged to up the intensity and run at 5k pace or faster on hill sprints. If you are new to this training, or possibly back from an injury then we will focus on technique and combine lower body strengthening at the foot of the hill.

Happy New Year to you all. Let’s start 2012 in style with some hill repetitions. Don’t be put off by the thought of running up hill. It has huge benefits to every runner if incorporated regularly into your training plan. It’s not just a burden to be endured when you realise that you are becoming a stronger and faster runner.
Both the cardiovascular system and the muscle strength improve from hill training, helping to curb any injury that runners may sustain. For those who are training for a Half or Full Marathon then this form of training is a must. You will increase running economy allowing you to run longer without feeling fatigued. When you stride past the ones struggling to the finish line, you’ll also have a very toned bottom. How good will you look!
Us FitBitch Trainers know the perfect hill to suit all abilities. If you’re new to hill training then we can focus on technique to start with. If you’re old hat at it then it will be time to increase the quantity and quality. Come along and start the year with some zest.

We will be doing pace sessions on a hill and returning to the bottom of the hill at each interval. There will be two of us helping to pace you depending on speed.
Pace sessions can sound so intimidating and off putting but they build fantastic strength. And you really do feel fantastic after wards.
