Tempo runs are a key to your success. And you will use them in the future as you move up in distances. In high school, many of us ran 2 miles or 3200 meters. As you get more advanced in your running, tempos become even more important.
Yesterday, Scott Fauble took seventh in the Boston Marathon. Scott runs for HOKA NAZ Elite and has a propensity for very large burritoes. In Boston, he averaged 4:55 a mile for 26.2 miles running 2:09.09. A good high schooler, and good college runner, Scott has blossomed on the roads. His focused training, his sense of humor, those burritoes, listening to his coach and tempo runs all played a part in his development.
Where will you go? How fast will you run? Remember, tempo runs, burritoes and focus.
