Hill training at Buttes Chaumont


We will be running this Tuesday evening at Buttes Chaumont in the 19th. The park is an interesting place to run because it's on a hill with a strong slope at the end. Hill training has many advantages, amongst which developping power and muscle elasticity.

The goal is to do 5 loops of the Park, clockwise. The overall distance that will be covered will be around 11KMs.
The pace will be of 5min/KM or 8min/Mile. (If you think you're only a bit slower it's ok, we'll adapt)

Advanced runners will be able to accelerate once reaching the slope, and then join back the others so that we remain grouped.

Meeting is at South entrance of Buttes Chaumont, close to M° Pyrénées, at 19H.
I'll have my mobile phone on me:[masked]

Those training for the Paris Marathon would find it useful to include this kind of training in their preparation. Most plans include a couple of similar trainings.
Those training for next week's half-marathon should ideally take it easy and not accelerate at the slopes.

      Hey David, too bad we missed each other. You should have sent me though a text message or a phone call; we waited a few minutes and we would have waited a bit more!
