** At Speaker Connolly, use the steepest hill, the last uphill on our mile lap. In Tymon use the last part of the uphill, from the crossroads with the path. After each hill sprint take 2-3 minutes walking recovery. These are sprints – as fast as possible, using arms, lifting legs, good running form
