Last night I took part in a 3k relay race in Stevenage. My legs hurt, and lungs hurt, and the rest of me just felt like it was an unwilling passenger. On the assumption I'm going to do it again next year, because I really should beat 13.05, can anyone give me advice as to how I get better at it? Drills, drills and more drills?

Clearly drills are important for all runners, regardless of distance but also training at the right intensity. Do you do many intervals at 800m-3km pace?

Got something to say?
