What’s up guys, I’m Jake Wightman and for those who don’t know me, I’m a British 1500m runner (and occasional 800m dabbler). I wanted to start sharing some stuff on here, and to begin with I’m going to give you a look at my 3 weeks of training in the build-up to running a 3:29 1500m in Monaco last Summer. This was a big PB for me and put me number 2 on the British all-time list for the event and helped me achieve a career goal of going under the 3:30 barrier. Hopefully the training data will speak for itself, but I’ll give you a bit of context around some of the stuff.

Becoming the 2nd fastest Brit of all-time over 1500, clocking 3:29 in Monaco (2020)

  1. Nice content!

    Few questions for Jake:
    1) How do you define the sessions like 6miles near 3’40/Km pace (between 5’40-6’00 pace)?
    2) These runs are done to recovery or to touch the high-end of aerobic spectrum without jump into an hard tempo run?
    3) Which kind of mileage do you do during winter?
    4) Could you describe a typical sprint session?

    Thank you!
