My goal is to run a 1500m in under 6 minutes next year. My current PB is 6:18 which I ran at the end of a decathlon that I did for charity 3 years ago. I've never done any kind of specific training. I used to run 3-4 miles 3 times a week but haven't done any running at all pretty much since that decathlon finished. I'm 41 and weigh 73kg if that's relevant.
The complication is that I will only be able to do 10-15 mins of training twice a week due to having 2 kids aged 2 and under. I joined a gym 6 weeks ago and use the treadmill as a warm up method so was going to try and use this as my training. I know it's not going to be ideal but am after any advice on how to best use this short amount of time to best effect and knock off a few seconds.
At the moment I just do 3-4 mins @9:15mm pace and then just have a quick burst of 60-75 secs @ 6mm pace. I've just created a custom interval session to use which would be 4 mins warm up and then 5 x 30 secs @6mm with 30 secs @9:30mm recovery. Would this be any good as I was going to try it for the first time tomorrow? Or shall I try something different?
I do circuit training once or twice a week as a suppliment and maybe a 1k swim once a week at lunch time.
Any advice appreciated!
