Speed Training

Hi,

I’ve read lots about how speed work can help improve my 10k time, should I make all of my sessions interval-based if I want to get faster quickly?

    Incorporating intervals in your training is great for getting faster although you need to balance your weekly training so that you have one hard interval session per week along with a tempo/race pace run and a more steady paced longer (10km+) run.

    If you went to all speed work too early you would find the strress on the joints and muscles may lead to injuries so I would suggest a month of once a week and then alternate one or two speed sessions every second week from there.

    It is wise to go through cycles of speed work where you might take 2-4 weeks away from fast work to let the legs recover and then come back to it with fresh legs.

    Hope that helps!

    James
