In this workout, inspired by UK marathon coach James Thie, we'll tackle 5 reps of 3min at your 5k threshold pace with 90sec easy between. This is a great workout to help build your threshold capacity, which is your ability to work at threshold for progressively longer durations - a crucial ability for any great endurance runner.
