5 x 1500m = PPTG Week 4

Posted by thepeteplan on June 16, 2011

My first session of week 4, so the first repeated session of the PP training group for me. In week 1 I averaged 1:42.4 for this session, so my aim was to pace the first 4 reps in the range 1:43-1:42, then hopefully put in a faster last than last time, and so push the average down by a few tenths.

5 x 1500m / 5min rest:
5:07.9 / 1:42.6 / 28
5:06.8 / 1:42.2 / 28
5:06.3 / 1:42.1 / 28
5:04.9 / 1:41.6 / 29
4:56.0 / 1:38.6 / 30

7500m = 25:21.9 / 1:41.4 / 28

Happy enough with that. I obviously had a bit in hand, as dispite it not feeling easy, I was never in doubt about being able to do a fast last rep at any point in the session. I don’t mind that though, you don’t need to be killing yourself on these sessions all the time, so having the ability for a fair bit faster on the last rep when your head’s up for it is fine.
