It depends! I used to subscribe to that view - however it depends a bit on the training benefit you are trying to achieve, Project Joker is pushing the threshold pace and your ability to deal with it rather than pure speed, so slightly slower is right. If you are way off then it could be that your baseline was a bit slow - or that what you lack is speed endurance rather than pure speed (if that makes sense).

Does anybody know what's happening with the info we put in to follow this and the results? I've done 2 rounds of PJ now, and the 2nd time in particular, made a dent in my 5k. It was a by-product of my half marathon training rather than targeted specifically for 5k, but because the plan included long and tempo every week and quite a few intervals, i captured it on PJ too. But once I put in my final 5k time it's all disappeared.

Got something to say?
