|Subject: ||My coach doesn't believe in thresholds and has us do only interval work. Is this normal for college?|
I shouldn't say we never do thresholds, but we do about 1 every two weeks, and it's usually only 10-15 minutes, and we always do intervals either before or after it. So in two weeks time we usually do a lot of 200m-1000m reps with one workout looking something like 3x300m with 90s rest, 10 min tempo, 8x200m hard with 1:00 rest. Even 10k guys rarely do more threshold work than that. Is this the typical way to train in college?
