single-speed riding (fixed or not) is more work than multi-speed, but you get there quicker so the workout isn't as long
. You don't have any choice but to attack hills, because you can't realistically go up a hill at a cadence of 1 RPM.
I definitely wouldn't compare riding a fixie to running, I did 20 miles on my fixie with huhenio last week (he was on his fixie too), with only a couple short stops... and I can't run ONE mile (or at least I doubt it. I couldn't a long time ago and I haven't tried in many years).
