Subject: Question re: Rest on BT Plans
Schedule calls for five 6 min intervals at threshold with 3 minute rests. Is the rest a full complete stop and recover OR is it a slow jog or walk to recover before starting the next interval?

Typically Rest times means a super easy jog. Always keep moving, never stop completely. If you feel like you need to walk, then walk (and go a little bit more easier next time...it shows you went too hard).

There is nothing wrong with walking between intervals when doing speed work.  While 6 minutes of effort can't really be considered "speed work" for all but world class distance runners, don't get the idea stuck in your head that you shouldn't walk when doing intervals, or the idea that it means you went too hard.  That's just not true.

I'm curious why you say 6 minutes of effort can't really be considered speed work. That's pretty standard for me, I'll go out and do 2-5 6' miles. Are you saying this isn't productive?
