  • how do i train primal for competative 5k sugestions plz

    i need to get my 1.5 mile run from 9 50 to 8 50 for the royal marines test

    the test has you running 1.5 miles in a group running it in 12.30(iv been told the pti usualy does it in 10.30 depending on his mood) with 1 min rest then a best effort 1.5mile as iv said above i am currently running in around 9.50-10.10 but need to get it down to 8.50 or lower by 8th may

    i do 2 tabata sesions with 1 min rest inbetween barfoot on monday
    2 45 min bodyweight sessions a week and walk barfoot across the countryside everyday for about an hour
    iv just started doing this a also do full body isometrics 6 days a week every morning for about 40 mins

    was thinking of adding in 1 sprint pyramid ie 30 sec sprint 30 sec rest 1 min sprint 1 min rest 2min,3min,4min an back down
    and a 20 min tempo session
    but if anyone has better suggestion i would apretiate it alot wether thats just staying as i am or adding in more as long as i get sub 8.50 i dont mine preferably i wanna stay as primal as possible

    cheers for your help

    future bootneck :]

    I would say your idea to build up your aerobic base by doing sprints are very good. Playing an aerobic sport a couple times a week is a good way to get some fun interval work in. Basketball and Ice Hockey do it for me, soccer would be another good one too.
