Hey guys, I just ran 6.00 pace at relays for 5k....from that time what pace do you think my recovery runs should be in? I run most miles apart from speed sessions at 7.30 pace...is that too quick and slowing my quality down? Just wondered if im falling into that slow miles to fast category?
What position do you have to come in the relays to qualify for the nationals? Can't seem to find the answer anywhere? Is it top 25, I think I remember that from somewhere. Hope it is as our team came 24th in the midlands relays yesterday
DeanR7 - I did a 400m race for my club a couple of years ago when I was in full fitness...I got 59 seconds and was pleased as punch with that for breaking 60 secs...you were only 3 seconds off that with one of your reps....what is your 400m race PB if you don't mind me asking...you must be seriously quick.
I think the longer reps for my second speed session each week were a very good idea.....did 5x5mins with 75seconds recovery and they came out at 5.57, 5.59, 6.12, 6.17, 6.09. Felt really winded in the middle so obviously a lot of speed endurance missing....really enjoyed the session though doing something a bit different so thanks for the suggestion Johnas. I think I might be a little way from PB form.
