In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.

Sprints suck. Uphill sprints suck more.
During a short run try and find a suitable place to perform this leg burner of a workout. Maybe plan on walking back. Always warm-up well, and cool-down sufficiently by stretching.
1-6 15-second uphill intervals on 30-60 seconds of recovery.
Recover 2-4 minutes.
1-6 30-second uphill intervals on 1-2 minutes of recovery.
Recover 2-4 minutes
Repeat (optional for advanced athletes)
Feeling too heavy for uphill sprints? Try our FOD.
