5k Interval Training – Try These Intervals

Here are some suggestions for intervals you might do in your 5k training. They are not easy as you will be running fast. With the exception of the mile intervals you will be running at your TARGET 5k pace (realistic target please!) OR FASTER. the shorter the interval the faster you go. The 1k intervals are most beneficial for most people if you can manage them, especially if you can only allow 2 mins recovery in between.

14-16 X 200 meters

8-12 X 400 meters
6-8 X 800 meters
4-6 X 1000 meters
3-4 X 1 mile repeats
