750m reps

Posted by thepeteplan on April 29, 2012

I’m still following along a few weeks behind my coached group, and currently just beginning Week 3 of the Pete Plan 5k training group. It is a fair jump in rep duration from week 2 to week 3, moving from 600m to 750m reps, while the total session distance also moves back to 7500m from the 7200m of week 2. But by this stage we’re becoming more acclimatised to the intensity of the work, and so you’re actually able to get into a bit more of a rhythm on the longer reps.

10 x 750m / 1:40 rest:
2:32.2 / 1:41.4 / 30
2:32.0 / 1:41.3 / 30
2:32.2 / 1:41.4 / 30
2:32.1 / 1:41.4 / 30
2:32.1 / 1:41.4 / 30
2:32.1 / 1:41.4 / 30
2:32.1 / 1:41.4 / 30
2:31.9 / 1:41.2 / 30
2:31.1 / 1:40.7 / 30
2:27.4 / 1:38.2 / 32

7500m = 25:15.1 / 1:41.0 / 30

It is another one of those sessions that you really have to take one rep at a time. Operating above your anaerobic threshold for a longer and longer duration each rep it never feels comfortable,¬†and in the early reps it seems like a long way to go. But take it one at a time and all you have to consider is “can I do the next 750m on the pace target?”, if the target is accurate the answer will never be a definite no.
