3 / 5K PRE­DIC­TOR

Runner's World (UK) - - Training -

WHY ‘It’s a very good in­di­ca­tor of whether you can han­dle five kilo­me­tres at a cer­tain pace even with rest in be­tween, since a 5K is less about en­durance and more about short bursts of en­ergy,’ says Hen­wood.

HOW Two or three weeks be­fore race day, run 5x1000m at your 5K goal race pace, with a 400m re­cov­ery jog be­tween each in­ter­val. Take the av­er­age of your five sin­gle kilo­me­tre times and mul­ti­ply it by five to get your pre­dicted time.
