Do you want to get stronger for running uphill or are wondering what muscles you should strengthen for hill training?

-What is hill training?

-Why would you consider adding hill training into your running workouts?

-When is the best time to start running hills in a training cycle or calendar year?

-How do you train for hill runs? 

-How do we implement this type of training?

-How do I get stronger at running uphill?

-How do I strengthen my legs for hill running?

-Misconception about hill training?


This was a value packed conversation with a coach who just recently added hill training into her personal running training for the Boston Marathon! I hope you enjoy the episode with Elisabeth who is a true professional in the running coaching and podcast community.  Most importantly, I hope you learn a thing or two that you can take into your next training cycle!
