- Mixed Intervals (4s, 8s, 2s)
Objective: Mixed intervals are done
at a higher intensity level than your goal race pace. Mixing longer and shorter
intervals helps train up your threshold pace. Mixed intervals typically break
a race distance into alternating longer and shorter intervals - in this case 5K.
Perform a standard
warm-up plus any additional drills or exercises for the day.
All intervals to be
done hard (90% effort for the interval distance), all with 2 minutes rest
