Saucony RBR Summer Mileage Program, Week Nine, Day Two, from RunBlogRun

The Tempo Run is our Tuesday workout. As you get closer and closer to the season, you should consider increasing the quality of your tempo run. This is about a perfect workout for callousing you for the upcoming cross country season. 

Remember, do hard workouts with a friend.

Tuesday:  1-mile warm up, 20-minute tempo run, 1-mile cool down. 

To determine your tempo run pace, add a half-minute to your present mile pace for a 5K. So if you can run 18:30 for a 5K now, that's a 6:00 pace. Add 30 seconds and your tempo run pace is 6:30 per mile.
