Saucony 500 Mile Challenge, Week Ten, Day Two, Moving From Training to Racing, Tuesday, August 19, 2014:
Tuesday: 1-mile warm up; 20-minute tempo run, 1-mile cooldown. To determine your tempo pace, add a half-minute to your present mile pace for 5k. So, if you can run 18:30 for 5k now, that is a 6 minute pace. Add 30 seconds, and your temp run pace is 6:30 per mile. Recalculate your pace as your fitness improves, perhaps once a month. #saucony500, #findyourstrong
RunBlogRun.com and the RunningNetwork.com sites recommend this renewed support of the two mile postal.
HOKA ONE ONE has revived the postal competition, a way for high school teams and individuals to see how fast they are over two miles and how they rank around their states, and yes, across the Estados Unidos.
The site is located at www.hokaoneonepostalnationals.com.
On top of that, RunBlogRun.com will list the top teams and we will do the same in American Track & Field magazine and Athletes Only!
