I do some variation of both. The mass of my body together with gravity provides a degree of resistance. Moreover, other laws of physics, such as those to do with movement and acceleration also play in (when you are on your way down, and your foot reaches the ground, it takes more strength to straighten your leg and foot so as to move your body upwards again).

I alternate between running at a slower speed for longer, and running faster, or even as fast as I can. In particular, I often try running faster when I'm going uphill.

It is! I went from not being able to pull my body up on a bar (with my head above) at all to being able to do it maybe 12 times. Then I stagnated, so I wasn't getting much reward any more from the training and it was just a chore so I eventually dropped out of going to the gym.

Running is something that I can mix into my daily routine, without having to go to any particular place (ie. the gym).
