2018 HOKA ONE ONE RunBlogRun Spring Training, 800m-5000m, week 5, day 4, lots of 300 meter repeats today


Week 5, building towards an exciting season

Early in season, 300 meters are good sessions to get you on the track. This is at mile pace. Last week you ran two sets and today, you are running three. The key to interval work? Take one set at a time, and focus on your training. Want to help build your kick? In the last set, run the last one as if you are kicking in a race. Break the 300m into three sections, increase the speed in each section as you get closer to the line.
