Short intervals: 400s or so

Today in the predawn I was going to do my short intervals, but it started to rain and I posponed it to the morning. At 10:50 a.m., I went out to the conservatory , warmed up 16:53 at an easy pace, then stretched for a couple of minutes, then started my invervals, 8 x 400s at 3k race pace or so, Danilo told me a place in the conservatory that are 400s or so, so I did that point to point that are 400s, the splits for the ¨400s¨were: 1:27,1:30,1:31,1:33,1:33,,1:33,1:29,1:30, did 11:21 for cool down, the total time was around 51:29. The weather was nice!. I dont know if the distance is exactly 400s, but the breathing was labored, the pace got easier at the end though, not sure why!! nice interval workout, we will see where it takes me, the splits were a bit faster than I would wanted, because the goal was 3k race pace which around 1:36, but what can I do!! Nice inverval workout!!

9 kms or so total, 51:29.

  1. Great workout, Cesar. It seems to me that if you can handle the pace for 8 of them, then it's probably not too quick, especially because you finished fast.

  2. Thanks! I have a 5:29 PR in the mile so i can handle speed more than threshold and endurance, I am too slow in the long distances, but I can run fast in the short workouts, however, I am working on tempo runs once a week!! Thanks again!
