“With the Olympic Trials just a year and a half away it’s time to start making progress towards my main goal as an athlete, to return to the Olympics and be at my very best there.

Jack’s Keys To Running Faster In The 800m and 1500m

For improvement in 800m and 1500m/mile the main key is to work on comfortable Repetition workouts — fast, but not so fast you lose good mechanics. Often runners try to run too fast in their Rep sessions and they lose the benefit of the session, which is economy and speed, and it is hard to improve economy if you are struggling to hit too fast a time. [Determine your Rep pace]

It is easy to overlook good aerobic training in an 800m/1500m program, with the idea that all that is needed is speed. Good aerobic fitness (from Interval workouts) not only benefits these races themselves, but improves rate of recovery when doing the faster Rep sessions. [Determine your Interval pace]
