Runners World takes a look at the 5K - a running distance that doesn't get enough credit but can be just as hard to train for to run fast as it can be to train for longer distances. Read the article here.
5 workouts to help you get that 5K PR
And then following on from the above article, Training Peaks has a list of 5 workouts to help you improve your speed for shorter distances: hill repeats; 50/50 run; pyramid run; fartlek; and a 3K time trial. Check out the article for all the details of these workouts.
3 running workouts for the treadmill
Finding it too hot to run outside at the moment and opting for a treadmill workout at the air conditioned gym instead? Then check out this article at triathlete.com for three treadmill workouts, two from top coaches and one from an Ironman World Champion, that can boost your run training.
