Hill Workouts on a Treadmill.. Perfect for Marathon or Ultra Training!

Hi Everyone!

As great as it would be if we all had a perfect hill to run up and down right outside our front door, for a lot of us.. there isn’t anything for miles around.

So attention turns to the treadmill and how we can effectively train on that, either when the weather is grim, or we need to get the elevation in.

These are four workouts that are quite advanced, but you can easily adjust the reps, or time to suit what you want to do. If you are new to hills on a treadmill I’d suggest halving all these workouts to 30 mins for your first few goes.

All the best and let me know how you get on!
