Tempo Runs help the athlete build their strength, endurance, and sense of pace.
This is your workout for today, Tuesday, September 6, 2022. Warm up well, and begin with a 30-minute run, moderate pace, and finish up on a track. For 20 minutes, run at 20 seconds per mile pace above your current 5k race pace, so if you race a 5k at 6 minutes per mile pace, your Tempo run would be at 6.20 per mile pace. After the 20-minute Tempo run, run easy for 10-15 minutes, and finish with 4 times 200 meters, stride outs, then cooldown.
