This is a 2-6 mile run with seven hills thrown in. Starts at Colectivo and runs up and down Lafayette Hill, Water Tower Hill, Ravine Hill (at the Bistro), and Kenwood Hill -- then back again in reverse. The two mile option skips the last two hills. A five mile option skips Kenwood Hill. Here's a link to the route.
Beginners are always welcome (to this and all our runs).
We won't be racing up the hills, but rather aiming to maintain a constant effort up and down. Practicing this tactic in training will help on races with rolling hills and teach our bodies to avoid exerting too much energy.
Many runners attack hills too hard during a race. This workout is a great chance to practice running up (and down) hills while building endurance and leg strength.
This workout repeats every other Thursday. (On the other Thursday we do hill repeats at Atwater Park.)
