A training plan, guide and advice to help increase your running speed through interval sessions – whatever your level

Interval training can help runners of all abilities to run faster. But, if it’s something you’ve never done before, there’s a few things you should know to make sure you’re doing it safely and getting the full benefit.

It might seem complicated, but interval training is simply periods of running faster (efforts), followed by running slower or walking (recoveries) a few times in a row (number of reps). Your efforts and recoveries can be measured either by time or by distance. So you might run 400 metres of effort followed by 200 metres recovery, or perhaps 5 minutes of effort followed by 90 seconds of recovery.
