Running downhill repeats with an easy jog back to the top between sets is great for building speed. The decline allows you to run faster than you could sprint on a flat surface, building speed as you go. It’s best to add this to your routine after you’ve built quad strength through uphill running (a few months into training for beginners). Start with just three or four repeats the first week on a hill of 200 meters or less, as downhill running has a higher injury risk that running uphill.
