The Pete Plan blog

5 x 1500m

Posted by thepeteplan on January 9, 2009

1k warm up = 1:55.5 / 24

500m = 1:39.9 then c-breeze came off, so put it back on and restarted the session.

5 x 1500m / 5min rest:
4:59.6 / 1:39.8 / 31
4:59.6 / 1:39.8 / 31
4:59.6 / 1:39.8 / 31
4:59.8 / 1:39.9 / 31
4:53.8 / 1:37.9 / 32

24:52.4 = 7500m / 1:39.4 / 31

Total recovery interval = 4005m

It felt tough all the way through, but the question I kept asking myself was “if this was the last rep could you go faster?”. The answer was always yes, so there was never an excuse to slow down on a rep. I pace these differently to the shorter intervals – get the average on 1:39.9 straight away and just hold it there. I wasn’t confident enough of making the target on the final rep so was at 1:39.6 at 500m in then neg split from there, so the final average is pretty good I think.
