2. Speed Endurance

The Session: (3 x 200m with 30 secs recoveries) x 3

Tony says: Jess needs speed endurance for the 800m. "Doing shorter distances with shorter recoveries means your body gets used to working hard when it's not fully comfortable," says Minichiello. Do three sets of three sprints, with five minutes' rest between each set.
