On each successive Acg (acceleration glide) you could run just a little bit faster. Don’t increase stride length much—use a quicker turnover of the feet and legs, touching lightly with the feet. Don't compete with other runners during this drill—let yourself gradually warm up. 4. Then glide!

Then run gently down the hill with a short to medium stride down and “coast” for about 50 yards on the flat (practicing a relaxed running form). Don't race other runners, and fine-tune your own downhill technique as you stay under control.
