Ladder Intervals

Ladder intervals are a great workout for mental toughness. Because the intervals get shorter and shorter you are aiming for the pace of each one to be quicker than the one before, which is where the mental toughness comes in! Ideally you would jog the recoveries but you can absolutely walk the recoveries if you need to.

This run totals 6km so if you are newer to running – halve the intervals and do:

600m fast, 200m recovery

500m fast, 200m recovery

400m fast, 200m recovery

300m fast, 200m recovery

200m fast, 200m recovery

And that will give you a 3km workout.

Happy running!
