5 x 2k / 90sec rest

Posted by thepeteplan on March 14, 2011

The first core session of Week 3 of the 5k training group, and again one focussed towards the 10k test next week.

5 x 2k / 90sec rest:
6:59.7 / 1:44.9 / 28
6:59.9 / 1:44.9 / 28
6:59.8 / 1:44.9 / 28
6:59.7 / 1:44.9 / 28
6:55.0 / 1:43.7 / 29

Total = 34:54.1 / 1:44.7 / 28

The 90 second rest periods felt just right for this workout. Enough time to have a quick drink and for my breathing rate to return to something approaching normal. I don’t find this type of workout much easier than a straight 10k at the same pace because although you get those short recovery periods they also break the rhythm. A tough but good workout.
