4) Hills up Summit Ave

This viciously steep hill in Brookline will give you a great workout this Fall.  Choose between doing 5-6 reps at 85% effort all the way to the top and jogging down, or run over the other side of the hill and back up the (very slightly) less steep side for a change of scenery.

5) Bridge Intervals on the Charles

Depending on the bridges you choose, these can be as short as 800m or as far as a mile. Run at 85% effort from one bridge to another, and then jog easy for half that time. Repeat as necessary!
