Workout of the Week (Haile Gebrselassie's favorite): The Mountain Run. It will strengthen both your legs and your mind.

Of course, running up and down a mountain does in fact stimulate certain beneficial physiological adaptations. It’s really two workouts in one. The first half, going up, develops leg strength and generally trains the aerobic system at a higher intensity than a flat run of equal duration does. We automatically work a little harder, minute for minute, when we go against gravity. The second half of the workout, going down, subjects the lower extremities to repeated high impact forces, and thereby increases their capacity to withstand such forces. For the marathoner this translates as less chance of bonking in the late miles due to accumulated muscle damage or loss of elasticity in the legs.
