5k run

Is this supposed to be a maximum effort time-trial or just a fast-paced run?

I think you're over thinking this Michael. Just do the darn run as fast as you can.

Re: 5k run

If the wod says "for time," or even if it doesn't say it then it's implied , it's as fast as you can; so yes, max effort.

Re: 5k run

Everything is for Maximum effort, if you're not going to go all out why do it?

Re: 5k run

Remember that it is as much a test as a workout. If you don't go all out each time then comparisons to previous 5k time don't mean a lot.
