Looking for a workout to keep you honest and dial in on your pace? Here's the plan:
12-16 x 400 in sets of 4
400m # 1 @ 10k Pace
400m # 2 @ Mile Pace
400m # 3 @ 5k Pace
400m # 4 @ Mile Pace
1-1:15 recovery between 400’s and 2-2:30 recovery minutes after each set.
5K and 10K pace feels different as the sets continue. Fatigue from mile pace adds up. That's the point. It's the same deal if you actually race a 5K. Mile 1 will not be the same experience as Mile 3.
Be honest with yourself. Run your TRUE 10K, 5K, and mile paces. Consistency on each of the 3-4 sets. You can do it!
