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.

I run or do cross training almost every day, with my longer runs on the weekend. I notice that the farther I run, even when I watch what I eat after running, I weigh a good 5lbs more than I usually do and it takes almost the rest of the week to go back to my normal weight. Why is that?

I've got my place in the London Marathon but we are going skiing on the 7th April for a week but I'm worried about training. How should I train during that week?
