Topic - hill reps advice

string arms - on 19 Jan 2013
Hi all.
I'm looking for advice on hill reps. I've been told that the idea is to run pretty hard up the hill for 2 minutes, then alternate the descents between a jog back and a fast descent for the first half (then jog) back to the start. I did this for the first time today on Moel Y ci (x10). The first 4 ascents were on the 2 minute mark, slowing to 2.18 by the 7th and the last three at 2.10 without any rests in between. I prefer the fell rather than the road to do this as i have a nail down my tib and fib (and various screws in the ankle) and i find turf is less aggressive shock wise on the descent.
Is this the right approach and is the idea to gradually get further up the hill in the 2 minute time allowance. Cheers for any advice. Phil
