Speed is never an issue? So if two people have the same 5k PR.
Runner a 400m PR 55
Runner B 400m PR 53
You don't think runner A is gonna have an issue that last 200? Runner A obviously has better endurance, and in your theory means he should win the race. 9/10 times he won't, speed maters.
Hey not to be a jerk, but you probably don't need to do strides since you are putting in the time to win a local road race.
When you are a 53 400m runner and you are trying to be an All-American every tenth you can improve your 400, the better chance you have to be competitive in a kickers 5k race, which most championship style races are.
Don't do strides, anyone you talk to have them do the same. Anyone I coach or have ever coached will be happy that you did that.
It still has nothing to do with a sub 60 last lap (which isn't a sprint in the first place).
And I'm still confused as to how you really think doing strides helps with a 'kick' when doing strides after an easy run has nothing to do with the specific endurance necessary to kick off a sub 14 pace. Again, speed is NEVER the issue with a kick. Never.
So it honestly just sounds like a complete waste of time in regards to running specificity, even if it's only 10 mins a day.[/quote]
