Don't Tempo Me
Fudge, this post has nothing to do with cake. Chocolate cake actually sounds better, but there is already plenty of sugar in my diet This week we will be doing a Tempo Run. Tempo runs are one of the best ways to prepare you for racing as they are set up to run close to race pace for more than just a short interval. Warm-up as usual with a mile or two and some stretching (dynamic and static). Next do a tempo run of 1.5-2.5 miles. Choose a speed that is about 80% of race pace. If you're not sure about the pace, it should be one where you can't talk during the run but not one where you are out of breath. Good luck and have fun!
