Subject: Interval workouts and pace determination
The distance of repeats can be anywhere from 200m to say 2000m on the track, and the rest interval can short (60 sec.) or long (2-4 min.)
The endless variety has me confused.
For example, the other day I did 10 x 400m w/60 sec rest
With such short rest, I ran closer to my 3K pace than my mile pace. But you could also do 400m repeats at MILE pace and reap a different benefit right?
Same thing for 1000m repeats. You can run them at 5K pace or at 10K pace with adjusted recovery.
I don't train for a specific event, just a range of events from the mile to half-marathon. Every 7 days I run intervals on the track but how do I choose between mile pace/5K pace/10K pace?
Is there an order I should follow? A periodization element I'm not understanding?
To you agree than I should train at goal pace or should it be at date pace?
Should I progress by starting with a desired goal pace and reducing the recovery as the season progresses or should the rest interval stay the same and the speed incease from month to month?
