4 / 4 X 800S

Runner's World (UK) - - Training -

WHY For new and in­ter­me­di­ate run­ners, half-mile re­peats help you gauge your speed with­out wor­ry­ing about pac­ing your­self over a longer dis­tance.

HOW Af­ter a warmup, run 800m at a com­fort­ably hard pace. Ad­just pace in the next three reps depend­ing on how you feel (take a 5-min walk be­tween each). Take the av­er­age pace of your reps to find your 5K goal pace. Over three months, in­crease the reps to five or six, or de­crease re­cov­ery.
