As you train this summer for cross country, the long run, the hill workout and the tempo run will help prepare you for a fall of successful cross country racing. Focus during this twenty minutes once a week. Feel yourself getting stronger and faster. And know that, this coming season, you will race better than ever! 
Saucony RBR Summer Mileage Program, Week Six, Day Two

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. 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.
