Larry’s Deep Thoughts: Hills should be one of your best weapons in your training arsenal. 1972 and 1976 Olympic gold double medalist Lasse Viren used 800m hill repeats to build his strength and speed, and then, to fine-tune, his coach Rolf Hakkola used a series of jog, sprint, jog, sprints around a soccer pitch for 5,000 meters! There are many ways to reach success!

Noah Lyles uses hills in his winter workouts to build strength and speed. Long seasons need endurance. HIlls are great for sprinter, hurdlers and distance runners! Be one with the hills.
