Running Bridges

How to do hill repeats without hills

Living in Amsterdam where it’s basically pancake flat, it is hard to incorporate hill training into my training cycle. As there are some great benefits to running hills, I use bridges instead! i’ve made myself a running course where I cross the canal over some of the tallest bridges. I managed to get 140 meter ascent in an almost 30km run (which is nothing if you live in the dolomites, or near pikes peak. I know). These bridges are a great alternative to do your hill repeats too.

A while back I made a video about this little adventure. You can watch it here, or on my youtube channel.
