    Starting the max strength period of 24 wk plan next week.
    The warm up section states “15 min treadmill run /hike warm up 10’easy + 5′ of 1′ fast 1′ easy.” Would one of you who has done the max strength phase mind helping me interpret those instructions? Thank you.

    10 minute warm-up on treadmill at an easy pace
    After the warm-up alternate fast/easy pace for 5 minutes –
    1-minute on treadmill at fast pace
    1-minute on treadmill at easy pace

    Hope that helps.

    As Shashi described, the goal is to get ready for the max strength work, so it’ doesn’t have to be precise. (Nor do the fast-paced intervals have to be maximal.)
