Will hill training benefit my running?

Hills are great for building leg strength and they can also improve your running economy. The beauty of hill workouts is that you can choose the gradient, the distance covered in each rep and the total number of reps, depending on your goals. If you’re looking for speed and power, then you should go for reps over a shorter distance or time up a steeper hill. If you’re looking at more speed endurance then reps over a longer distance or time are best.
