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 2 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!
