This is a Combo day!

Hill Days are to wear you out, so we call it a hard day.

Your workout:

Warm up well,

15 minutes of running, easy to moderate,

8 x 400 meters, at a 2-mile pace, on a flat track or 80 seconds on flat, surface, hard effort

15 minutes of running, easy to moderate,

8 x 200 meters, hills, jog down

15 minutes running, easy to moderate,

8 x 150 meters, on track or roads, good pace

15 minutes, moderate to easy,

Cooldown well,


get out of wet clothes,



Larry’s Deep Thoughts: We use hills and an early track session. I have been reading about how some coaches combine efforts in a good workout. Ronnie Warhurst of the Very Nice Track Club, who coaches Hobbs Kessler and Morgan Beadlescomb, uses such methods. Let me know your thoughts! 

Again, like all of our workouts, fine-tune them for your team. You could do 8 x 400 hill, 8 x 200m, 8 x 150m, and run 15-20 before and after. Shake it up! 

Hobbs Kessler took the bronze in the 1,500m at the World Indoors in Glasgow on March 3, 2024. Watch him racing this spring!
