The tempo run continues to help get you ready to race. Don’t forget this workout! It is a great one to use the entire season!
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 18:00 for a 5K now, that means a 5:50 pace. Add 30 seconds and your tempo run pace is 6:20 per mile pace.
