Will I Benefit from Resuming Hill Training?

Perhaps it’s too obvious that I do expect to benefit from “Resuming Hill Training with Gentle Uphill Running“. My latest article in DeHaan Fitness admits that I found even a gradual but long uphill slope to be challenging, once I’d lost the discipline of regular hill interval training.

Hill Training as an Aerobic Exercise for Running Fitness

While it’s easier to regain a level of fitness than to build it up the first time, the significant benefits of regular aerobic exercise will keep me heading back to the hills for more. But for now, I’m going to concentrate on the baseline of running uphill at a gentle pace rather than pushing to my maximum aerobic limits.

And if you’re at all like me, and the other runners, cyclists and even a rollerblade enthusiast whom I saw on a bike trail along Lakeshore Blvd in Toronto today (Boxing Day 2014): take advantage of the mild weather! It’s a lot easier to exercise outdoors when the trails and sidewalks are bare of snow.
