3 x 20mins

Posted by thepeteplan on September 19, 2009

I thought I’d do the session again this morning that I did with Al and Andy on Wednesday, but rather than do them all at 20spm do 20, 22 and 24 for the 3 reps.

3 x 20mins / 3min rest:
5237m / 1:54.5 / 20
5359m / 1:51.9 / 22
5478m / 1:49.5 / 24

Total = 16074m / 1:51.9 / 22

A good few Saturday morning metres. I didn’t find this any harder than the 3 reps at 20spm on Wednesday (only a 1:55.9 average pace), though that is mainly because I was tired on Wednesday from the half mile reps on Tuesday, whereas yesterday was a fairly easy session. This is a good way to get the endurance work in, and I think this session (and perhaps the 19min rate pyramids) might feature more in my training rather than steady 10k’s, because I’m more likely to do more metres this way.
