5 x 750m – back to interval training

Posted by thepeteplan on August 8, 2012

It has been a while since I have done any pace work in my training, so a 5 x 75om reps session seems like a good way to start off.

5 x 750m / 3:30 rest:
2:29.7 / 1:39.8 / 30
2:29.5 / 1:39.6 / 31
2:29.4 / 1:39.6 / 31
2:29.4 / 1:39.6 / 31
2:23.7 / 1:35.8 / 34

3750m = 12:21.6 / 1:38.8 / 31

There is little doubt that I could and perhaps should have gone quicker in the first 4 reps, but that will come. The rest felt generous thoughout, which means that the pace only felt tough mentally, not physically. When I consciously kept the rate up in the final rep there was some pace there, so that is a good sign. How much pace can I get back in the next 4 weeks before my next overseas work trip? Watch this space.
