Welcome back to Zwift. It's great to have you here for our fifth workout in the 2021 Zwift Academy Run Series. This is Coach Terrence Mahon and I am going to guide you through this session. The workout we have for you today is called '5k Intensive Intervals.' I think the title says it all. Today is all about mastering your 5k goal race pace. We are going to do this with multiple sets of shorter and faster intervals. Each set consists of a 3-minute interval, followed by a 2-minute interval and finally a 1-minute interval. The pace picks up with each successive run and is followed by a 2-minute recovery phase before we start back up again. This one is spicy right from the start so make sure that you have gotten in a good warm up before we start. There is nothing better than this one to get you 5k fit!
