One of the first clubs that offer interval runs and workouts is the Mile High Run Club. It adds efficient strength training components to the interval runs. Fortunately, you don’t have to go to New York just to take advantage of Mile high’s efficient Interval workouts as they can be done in the comforts of your home. These workout routines guarantee speed and endurance improvement.

Speed Developing and Conditioning Workout involves four striders of various levels:

  • Level one – easy jog (light effort) – recovery pace
  • Level two – base pace (between light and difficult) – marathon pace.
  • Level three – threshold (hard effort), half marathon pace
  • Level four – sprint effort 5-Kilometer pace.

Striders are known as pick-ups. At the start, you maintain easy pace until speed increases. Lengthen strides rather than making more steps.
