Several warm-ups include the instruction in Training Peaks for 5x30 second speed ups. Do these include a rest interval in between (like the 4x30 second ones in Cool Impossoble)?

Hi Scott, I'm following Eric's marathon program on Training Peaks, I'm not sure if this is the same program as you but the same warm up is included and I use this thus.

As the speed ups are of no specific speed, just as you feel, I jog/run easy a 30-45 second recovery between each speed up. The idea here is to use them as warm up not part of the session.

Hope I've helped & keep us posted on your progress.
