Comrades Marathon training programmes: How to run the hill repeats

We chat about how to do the hill repeats in the Comrades Marathon training programmes. Louise Routenbach submitted her question via our website. It is quite interesting too, it has to do with your Comrades Marathon training programmes and the hill repeats you’ve got in them.

Louise is following your Comrades Marathon bronze medal training programme and she wants to know do you run up for 2 minutes and then down or up for 1 minute and then down for 1? The pace of 5.10 – 5.20, does that include coming down or is it just the going up?
