Saucony 500 Mile Challenge, Week Seven, Day Two, Tuesday, July 29, 2014

Tuesday: 1-mile warm up, 20-min. tempo run, 1-mile cool down. To de- termine your tempo run pace, add a half-minute to your present mile pace for a 5K. For example: if you currently run 18:50 minutes for a 5K, that's 6:05 pace. Add 30 seconds and your tempo run pace is 6:35-per-mile. Recalculate your pace as your fitness improves, perhaps once a month., #saucony500
