The racing season is upon you! Make it count!
Saucony RBR Fall Cross Country Training, Week 15, Day 2
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.
