Welcome to New Interval Training

Break through your personal speed barriers using the New Interval Training method, which is a truly appropriate method for runners of all ages. It is as appropriate for recreational runners who want to improve and develop their fitness as it is for Olympians and for professional athletes. This website will take you through the background of how, over the past 35 years, Peter Thompson developed 'Lactate Dynamics Training' (1994) and the 'New Interval Training' (1995). More than that, it will show you how to create New Interval Training sessions for yourself. And, for those who are interested, it links the scientific basis to why this method is so effective and ground-breaking.
