Short, Fast Hill Repeats

We switched up our Saturday hills today.

After rucking to a shorter, steeper hill, we did a 5-second hill sprint (25 meters) every 30 seconds for 15:00.

This allowed for just enough time to walk back down the hill and regroup before sprinting again. My heart rate stayed aerobic the entire time, yet I was able to run fast and explosively.

A solid work capacity training session that I’ll be sticking with for a few weeks. Fifteen minutes this time around, I’ll see how far I can push the time before either my speed drops or heart rate increases too much.
