Sprint up stairs?
Adjusting hill sprints on a treadmill
I’m in middle of the Intro to Ultrarunning plan and it has me doing hill sprints—-3 sets of 4×8 sec power running uphill. Lacking real hills, I tried this today on the treadmill and found that it doesn’t actually work that well. It takes too long for the treadmill to gear up to the pace I need for it to be a power workout, and it’s a little complicated to speed it up and then jump on.
Is there a way to adjust the workout so that it still serves the same purpose but can be accomplished easier on a treadmill? I do have a *very small* hill nearby but not sure it’s steep enough or long enough to get what I need.
PS it also has 2×30” med effort, but that feels more doable, as the treadmill can build to the needed speed in around 10-15 seconds
