    Goal with this workout is to teach pacing.
    Perform on as flat as possible out and back course. Run the first interval out looking at your watch, rest the allotted time and then return back to your starting position without looking at your watch.
    The goal is to have both intervals the same speed.
    For example set 2
    Run 2mins out looking at your watch. At 2mins stop, rest 30secs and then start the 2mins back to your starting point. The goal is to finish + or – 2 secs. So 1:58-2:02 would be a good return time.
