Back to the mixed distance session again this week. This may be the last time we do this sequence for a while, next iteration we will be doing 3 x 1600m. This week it will be 4 x 400m, 2 x 800m and 1 x 1600m all at the same pace. Hopefully everyone has been keeping some record of their times over the weeks. Remember this entire session is run at the pace you (expect) to run the 1600m. If you are hoping to run the 1600m in 6 minutes you will need to run the 800s in 3 min and the 400s in 90s. Look at the time you did the 1600m last time we did this session and try for a 5-10s improvement this time round.
4 x 400m with 200m easy jog
2 x 800m with 400m recovery jog
1 x 1600m
Easy cool down
