No, it is not recommended — especially since so little time will be devoted to developing an aerobic base; any anaerobic work (yes, focussed hillwork will be anaerobic) done will just compromise it further. Running hilly courses during the base period is fine, and in fact is recommended, but doing something of 120-180″ length for several bouts up a hill in the context of a workout is both unnecessary and quite potentially counterproductive in the long run. The workouts will come along in their due time, rushing things could muck up the works.
