Ok Go – Interval Training

January 6, 2009

First interval training session of the new year – a 5km job using the ok go playlist.

What is interval training

‘Interval’ training is broadly defined as repetitions of high-speed/intensity work followed by periods (the periods that are the actual intervals) of rest or low activity.

The Ok Go soundtrack walk through the intervals but allow you to set your running pace to whatever you want. Today was one of my fastest interval sets. A base speed of 12k/h was set but fluctuated between that and 13km/h with interval jumps up to 18km.

I’m definitely improving on these and its actually very easy to compare the differences using my nike+. Ill get this info out at some point, as its interesting (for me anyway!).
