Discussion: Maybe you could try doing 'Kenyan Hills'
in: Charlotte W; Charlotte W > 2011-10-04;
seems very fashionable these days (see Oli/Rob's logs for example):
"Kenyan Hills. This would be a hill circuit of, say, 800m where you surge on the uphill and stride out on the down part, thus maintaining an even speed for maybe 10 loops, or a set time - 30 minutes. This is the type of hill running I think you need. The slope up and down should not be too steep. "
Glad you're settling in well out there!
isn't that what she just did ;)
I guess so! do you run the same time on the way down though or faster (ie more similar effort than recovery? that's how I'd understood it but then the time down would be shorter)
ah no it is exactly like that - seems I have always done Kenyan Hills!
I was trying to keep working at the same rate as I did on the up as much as I could on the downhill. So would you have any recovery on these Kenyan hills or do you just keep running round and round?
keep running round and around apparently, sounds like you did it just right!
There's an article in (I think) the septemer copy of runners world about the way kenyans train and includes a description of this session, interesting reading
