A hard workout that will let you know you are raceready. Upping the pace forces you to run faster on tiring legs – good raceday practice.
Run 800m hard, jog 200m, run 300m hard, jog 300m; repeat four to six times. Start the 800s at 10K goal pace and the 300s at 5K goal pace, and get slightly faster with each effort. This workout can be done throughout training: hit the maximum number of reps a month before your event.
