Mary Keitany working on speed and strength during a hill training session in Iten alongside husband Charles Koech.

Even marathon runners can benefit from hard hill and speed work training. Especially in the period immediately after a break from a marathon. If you have a long period between marathon races (as most will do), then following a break and a few weeks of easy running you have the opportunity to now focus on some shorter, higher intensity training before resuming the long marathon build up.

Your body will thank you for maintaining a level of speed and strength when you then do go back to the long marathon stuff.
