The Sleven Running Club kicked off this week! We will have 2 suggested workouts per week to complement your TWENTY FOUR SLEVEN training. Last week you tested your 5km time and this week we’re having you test your 400m sprint time. These two times are crucial in setting your pace for the programme.
Each week, Session 1 will be either intervals or tempo runs based off your 400m test, and Session 2 will be a longer run of 5km+. All designed to help you smash your 5km and 400m times, and culminating in a retest commencing 27th July.
Remember, these are only suggestions, and are there to complement your current training and help bring a little bit of structure to your running. So don’t get too caught up in the times, go out and enjoy your running!
Session 1: 400m test.
Session 2: 5km at PB+30%.
This week, Session 1 is a max effort 400m sprint. Don’t forget to check-out our Instagram post today for tips on how to approach and warm-up for this!
Session 2 is a nice steady 5km run, 30% slower than last week’s test. So, if you clocked a 25 min 5km, that’s 5 min/km pace, and you want to be doing Session 2 at 6:30 pace. Go out and enjoy the sunshine. Do not be tempted to push the pace, get comfortable taking it easy! We’re just trying to get some miles in here.
Don’t forget, we have a Sleven CrossFit Strava club!
