Monthly training tips! Hill training for ultimate running fitness
For most of our training venues around Australia, you are blessed to have the odd hill or two reasonably close to where you train. You may have also noticed that your Step into Life trainers like to take you there reasonably often. Increasing the gradient to your runs will significantly increase your oxygen demand. Even gentle hills will make your heart, lungs and muscles work harder than the same pace on a flat, even surface. Hill running is a type of interval training Even if you slow down a little, most hills will send your heart rate up, pushing you towards your limit of your aerobic system. Running up the hill can push you into anaerobic work (short bursts of intensive work without oxygen), while running down the other side allows you to recover back to your aerobic energy system. Hills are a natural interval training session. Benefits of Hill training

Enjoyment. Ok, humour me here, once youve developed some hill fitness you may actually start to enjoy the challenge and reward. I love nothing better in my running training than hitting a huge flight of stairs and challenging myself to run it a set number of times. (You might need to wait a few months for the enjoyment to kick in!) Tips for running up and down the hill: Uphill You should use a light, "ankle-flicking" push-off with each step, not an explosive motion. (This wastes energy.) You may like to try kicking your heels up a little to help. If the hill is long or the grade increases, keep shortening your stride to maintain a smooth and efficient breathing pattern. Run "through" the top of the hill. That is, don't crest the hill and immediately slow down or pull back on your effort. Rather, accelerate gradually into the downhill. Gravity is now on your side. Downhill Most runners make one or two obvious mistakes when running downhill. They either sprint, which causes severe muscle soreness later on, or they're so hesitant to surrender to gravity that they're constantly braking, which fatigues the quadriceps muscles. The optimum pace is somewhere in between. Try not to let your feet slap on the ground when you are running downhill. Step lightly and don't reach out with your feet. Slapping can be a sign of weak muscles in the shin area, in which case you need to strengthen them. To help your downhill technique, follow these simple tips: Try to visualise gravity pulling you down the hill Try to maintain an upright body posture, keeping your torso perpendicular to the horizontal Keep your feet close to the ground for maximum control, and land lightly As you increase your pace, emphasise quicker turnover rather than longer strides, though your strides can be slightly longer than normal The key to efficient downhill running is to stay in control. When you start, keep your stride slightly shortened and let your turnover increase. When you feel in control, gradually lengthen your stride If you start to run out of control when descending, shorten your stride until you feel you are back in control again. The next time your Step into Life trainer tells you that you are doing a hill session, embrace it, take on the tips that you have just read and enjoy the challenge!!

Increasing your aerobic capacity Improving physical strength hill running requires more power and strength than running on the flat. On uphill sections your muscles contract more powerfully than usual because they are forced to overcome gravity to move you up the hill. In particular, the quadriceps (front of your thighs), calf muscles and glutes (butt muscles) all have to work harder and become stronger to cope. This extra strength will then make you even better on flat courses where youll experience less muscle fatigue and a greater sense of resilience Learning rhythm learning to keep your rhythm steady when hitting a hill can make your rhythm even better on the flat courses Mental strength Conquering a hill (or a flight of stairs!) is a very satisfying feeling. It will give you greater confidence to try new and more demanding routes Burns more energy a bonus if you are also trying to reduce body fat

6 Ways to boost your metabolism

Most of us love the outdoors and it terms of exercising, not only is it more inspiring than indoors and less mechanical, it is now proven to have extra benefits. 1. Move more: You burn around 1 Cal per minute at rest, 4 Cal per minute walking briskly and over 8 Cal per minute running fast. You can dramatically increase your metabolic rate by moving more often and with more effort.

4. Eat enough calories: Drastically cutting calories can drop your metabolic rate by around 5% after just one day and by 10% after a week of semi-starvation. Eat at least 5000 kJ / 1200 Cal per day. Eat more if your body size and activity requires it. 5. Consume chilled water Swallowing around 500mL of cold water could boost your metabolic rate by around 30% above rest for an hour after drinking. This is only 100 kJ / 25 Cal, but it becomes significant when you drink more chilled water over a day - 2 litres could burn you 400 kJ / 100 Cal a day, which adds up over a year. Your body works to increase the water temperature and burns extra energy.

2. Build muscle: Every kilogram of muscle burns 10 Cal (42 kJ) at rest every day. Over a year, the math is simple add 1kg of muscle to automatically (even when youre asleep) burn off 1kg of body fat. 3. Eat more protein: Protein in food costs more energy to digest and absorb than carbohydrate or fat. Eating protein-rich foods like fish, chicken and lean meats makes your body work harder and burn more calories to process what you eat.

6. Drink green tea: Unlike many so-called thermogenic supplements, which are either dangerous or useless, drinking enough green tea can give your metabolic rate a nudge of around 300 kJ / 70 Cal a day. Youll need to consume 4-5 cups a day of green tea to get the benefits. What about eating every 3 hours? You may have heard that eating every 3 hours speeds your metabolism. However, your 24-hour metabolic rate will actually be no different, whether you eat the same foods in 6 smaller meals versus 3 larger meals. It costs your body the same energy to digest and process. So, dont freak out if youve missed a snack and can catch up later!
