Cooler weather means faster training runs: 8:30 pace in 80 degree weather means 7:30 pace when temps are in the 60s by Kevin L. Patient Expert Posted Tue 20 Sep 2011 11:09am The end of summer is not until Friday, but already the cool temperatures – and cool is a relative word since the morning lows are in the low 70s instead of the low 80s – are positively effecting my runs. On Monday, I had my first marathon-goal pace run. I ran 9 miles with the first three as a warm-up. I wore my heart rate monitor, which gav ... Read on »
Training Paces while Running by Allen Patient ExpertHealth Maven Posted Mon 17 Nov 2008 9:07pm When you talk with other runners or read the running literature, you hear comments about running various paces, such as rest runs, tempo runs, marathon pace, etc. Proper training means that you don't just run one pace all the time. You vary your pace according to the goals of your training. In this page, I discuss the paces that are commonly us ... Read on »
Long Run: Pace Running with an HRM by Cord C. Patient Expert Posted Mon 25 Aug 2008 6:44pm Today I did something a little different during my long run. Instead of putting on the footpod to track my pace, I decided to just use the Heart Rate Monitor to keep my rate at 145bpm to see if I could stay at 7:45/mile. My average ended up being 144bpm and my pace was at 7:44/mile. The goal was met and it gave me a bit more insight ... Read on »
Long runs vs. marathon pace runs by Amanda L. Posted Tue 27 Apr 2010 4:38pm In my last post I mentioned that I attended the RRCA coaching certification class. Well, I've now passed the test, so after next week's CPR/first aid course, I'll officially be a coach! I touched on the fact that one of my take-aways from the course was the fact that I run my long runs too fast. I'm guessing lots of people make the same mistak ... Read on »
Running pace vs. running effort by Amanda L. Posted Mon 11 Mar 2013 12:53am Trail runners understand pace vs. effort better than anyone. I live in an area where hills are pretty much a reality. You can find routes to run that are less hilly than others, for sure, but for the most part, it’s pretty hard to avoid hills altogether. Throughout this training cycle, where I was more focused on a particular pace than ... Read on »
How Do Easy Runs Help You Race Faster (and what exactly your easy pace should be) by runnersconnect Posted Wed 05 Mar 2014 6:00am A common question, and one of the more difficult concepts of training to comprehend, is “how do easy runs help me race faster”. As an example, if you want to run a marathon at 9 minutes-per-mile, how does running five to eight miles easy, or even your entire long run, at 10:30 pace accomplish this? Wouldn’t running all your miles as close t ... Read on »
Fartlek Running -- How to Improve Your Race Pace by RollinThunder Facebook Posted Tue 14 Sep 2010 12:00am I am in Denver conducting a training for DPS today. I got to my hotel yesterday and ran an easy 3.0 miles because if I don't run, I don't sleep at night. I followed up with a great TRX workout after I put the finishing touches on my presentation. As I was going through my Powerpoint slides, I started thinking about Fartleks. If you aren't using ... Read on »
P90X Hybrid Day 4: 4.5 Mile Run (pace) by Jeff Irvin Patient Expert Posted Wed 12 Aug 2009 10:46pm Four days down; 86 days to go! So another one in the books. Normal P90X schedule today would have been Yoga, but to accommodate my Triathlon training I hit the treadmill hard. My legs were feeling a little sluggish today. I did a 5 minute light jog to try and get some energy in them but it didn't help. I was planning on running for 45 minutes ... Read on »
What is your optimal running pace? by Perry R. Patient ExpertHealth Maven Posted Wed 05 Oct 2011 5:44am When I go joggling, I rarely think about my pace. Of course, it will depend on how far I intend to go but my natural pace is just around 8 min miles. It turns out that this might not be my optimal running pace. Optimal running pace is defined as the running speed that gets you the farthest distance with the least amount of energy ex ... Read on »
Running Nowhere Fast? Try These Tips for Increasing your Pace by RunnerDude Healthy Living Professional Posted Thu 19 Dec 2013 10:21am Seems like if you want to get faster, you'd just pick up your pace. Sounds like a simple solution, but like many things in life, what seems simple often is not. Many runners have come to the studio saying, "I just can't seem to get past a certain pace. I try to pick it up, but nothing happens or worse, I begin to slow down." To increase pace t ... Read on »
