    Just curious, what kind of road work do you guys do?

    Frequency?
    Distance?
    Pace?

    We would do 5k 3 nights a week at my local abc boxing club as a standard but some evenings more

    I do 5k 4 times a week. First mile is a 400 meter climb though so its pretty heavy going.

    Interval running increases endurance faster than long distance running. I do 1-2 days a week of interval running for 30-45 min on a treadmill. I do a 5 min warmup at 6 MPH and then from there on I do 30 seconds at 6 MPH and 30 seconds at 9-10 MPH. I do this in combination with long-distance running. for interval I run 5-6 km and for long-distance I run 6-8 km (Long distance is 2 times a week as well 3-4 days a week total)

    What pace? I'm assuming it differs on days but can you give a range?

    400 meter climb in one mile is a huge, steep incline. One of my routes, I do a run where I climb like 400 meters in 3 miles and that's a solid uphill climb. But 400 meters in one mile? LOL

    I can definitely see the benefit of interval running. The constant change in pace and making the body ramp up at a very high pace, stressing it, giving it a little rest, and doing it again.

    I can’t remember 100% but our training sessions were 2 hours long and I reckon we would do the 5k run in the first 30-45 minutes.

    We would sometimes do lampposts where during that run for 15 minutes you would have to sprint from one lamppost and then jog from the next then sprint again. This felt like I was getting the biggest benefit from as it would knacker me out! I ran long distance for my high school so jogging wasn’t too much of a problem but I was crap at sprinting

    Yes, Its a solid uphill climb. Sorts the men from the boys.

    Oh and pace wise, around 9 minute miles is the average for me, obviously first mile is a slow pace.

    I usually do a slow pace for 2-4 km and then do sprints on and off for 1 or 2 km,I like to do my sprints when I'm already tired,it's hard as hell but it works best for my stamina
