❗ This is a solid MID workout. If you're unsure of the pace range, start at the bottom end and try to go faster. ❗
The point of this workout is that it WON'T feel easy. But at the same time, it's not a TOP workout that will destroy you and leave you unable to continue at the end.
As each interval progresses, you'll get to a point where you'll expose yourself to 'hardship'. But then you'll have a rest for 2 minutes, which lets you recover - and the next interval will get to that point a little quicker. As I say in the video, it allows you to taste the hardship of what it feels like during a 5K, when muscles and lungs are working really hard - and your mind starts to ask you questions about whether you can continue at that pace. But importantly, you won't need to stop. You can keep going until the next rest period.
🚥If you want to programme your monitor as a 6x4 minute interval workout - remember to set the rest to UNDEFINED. This way, we'll both start and stop at the same time. There is a video on how to do this here: 🚥
As always, follow me for stroke rate. And I'll keep you company for the row with training tips, technique tips, and my usual general waffle.
