Long runs are done to improve our cardiovascular system by training the body to supply more oxygen to the working muscles. They must be done at a comfortable pace.
Sport Shack athletes do their long runs on Monday.
Speed work helps build strength in the muscles that help to powerfully propel the body forward. They also help build the anaerobic system so you learn to run with oxygen debt.
Sport Shack athletes do their long runs on Thursday.
Hill Training is a form of resistance training that helps build strength in the body. Running uphill also improves form.
Only advanced Sport Shack athletes do hill training on Saturday.

Running efficiently requires good form. Strength training is the basis of having a good running form.
