Have done a bit of research on increasing speed and came across a great calculator. According to this I should do 8x 400m at my speed pace followed by 3-4 minutes regular jog.
Well that’s easier said than done! Managed to do 200m at speed pace followed by 200m walk and 200m regular jog. Think I managed 6 times and got to 4K. But the thing is, I’m a bit put out by the fact that I can’t maintain that speed for very long. I must be so slow! If I ran an entire 5k at that pace, I’d still be at 27 minutes. Like how do people even run fast for long? I don’t get it 🤔
