Running Hills

runner

I started running hills yesterday.  Ran up 3 times and by the time I get to the top I’m winded.  I read in Runner’s World Magazine that running hills is good for training for a 5K (or any marathon).

Running hills strengthens tendons, ligaments, reduces the risk of injury, improves running form, focuses on individual joints and small sets of muscles, increases aerobic and anaerbic capacity, and when you run down the hill you can practice good downhill form!

This site is really good for running hills, coming down, types of hill workouts, etc. -> http://www.runnersworld.co.uk/news/article.asp?uan=159
