Interval Traing (Read 124 times)

    I did 3.13 tonight on the treadmill in 36:00.

     

    Dumb Question: I am doing the Higdon 5k intermediate plan just so I can have some structure. And i have a 5 k in march. Up until now I was doing c210K and it was really to many miles a week for me right now. I did 20+ miles a week for four weeks and ending up taking a couple weeks off due to knee pain.

     

    doing the 5x400 tonight. I warmed up with an easy mile then started the interval.

    is it 10 400 meters ....one walk/one at mile pace? Five times?

     

    5 x400

    Interval Training: To improve speed, you sometimes need to train at a pace faster than your race pace for the 5-K, about the pace you would run in a 1500 meter or mile race. Run 400 meters hard, then recover by jogging and/or walking 400 meters. Before starting this workout, warm-up by jogging a mile or two, stretching, and doing a few sprints of 100 meters. Cool down afterwards with a short jog.

      Yes, based on the description you provided. (400 run + 400 walk) x 5.
