Just some of the crazy interval training sessions 1500m/Mile World Record Holder HIcham El Guerrouj used to do.

* 10 x 300m in 35-36 seconds (3-4min jog rest) with surges and help from a “rabbit.”

* 6 x 500m with surges and help from a “rabbit” the first 300m in each repetition. 500m's in 1:08-1:09.

* 10 x 400m between 53-54 seconds with only 30 seconds recovery.

* 1600m (4:08), 1200m (3:05), 800m (1:54), 600m (1:23), 400m (54) with short recoveries starting with 1 min going down to 30 seconds!

* 4 x 2000m in 5:10 with 2 min recovery

* 6 x 1000m in 2:30 with 2 min recovery

It's easier to keep up than it is to catch up...

ya man these elite milers are freaks.

the range of speed they have, blows my mind.

i remember hicham's threshold/tempo runs were incredibly impressive too. i forget the exact paces but, seemed to do them 1-2x/wk for 45-60 minutes at like ~5 min/mi pace.
