Am I understanding how to train intervals properly? There are so many calculators / training plans etc that seem conflicting and I wondered if this may be a good, or absoluetly awful training plan for intervals:
I'd like to train to improve my 10k time from 38:47 to 38:00 minutes.
For 38:00 minutes the average pace would have to be about 6:07 min/miles.
Therefore, would I do sets of intervals at 6:07 min/miles (or marginally faster), for lets say 3 minutes, with a 1 minute slow recovery, ensuring that the distance of the intervals covers the full 10k?
So to get to 38:00, would I just reduce the rest time a bit each training session until I can finally run a 10k in 38 minutes?
