- short (8-10 sec) and steep (6-8%) hill sprints,
- moderate progressions (running later segments of an easy workout at a slightly faster pace), and
- fartlek intervals (incorporating 30-40 second moderate uphill intervals within an easy workout).
My fundamental period will start in January - that's when my specific marathon training will take place.
My training cycle will peak with a sharpening period just before my goal marathon race in 2009.
