Winter is the most important phase of training for cyclists; it is pivotal to prepare the body’s aerobic system to build a base to prevent fatigue come mid-season. If periodized correctly, you can ensure your base protects you from whatever the racing season will throw at you.

They can be run during the base phase of training or just a few days before a running race, which you may choose to target in the triathlon off-season. Hill workouts can build endurance, top-end speed, or improve VO2 Max.
