Threshold Set for the Run by coach Tara
3k, 2k, 1K.
Training for a fall ½ or full marathon? This set is a great way to build in some tempo / threshold.
- Begin with a 2k warm up and start the 3k at marathon or ½ marathon pace, the 2k at ½ marathon to 10k pace and the 1k at 10-5k pace.
- For recovery between sets try 90-120s of easy walk/jog.
- Finish off with a 2k cool down for a solid 10k run.
