A demonstration of the proper pacing and technique for tempo runs. Be sure to incorporate this exercise into your running regime.
Amanda: Hi, I’m coach Amanda. We’re talking about the tempo run right now. This is a type of run where you’re gonna hold a steady state. It’s a little faster than easy run pace, but a little slower than your interval or repetition pace. Gonna start with a 15 minute warm up, so 15 minute easy jog at your easy run pace. And then you’re gonna hold for about 20 to 30 minutes about a little more uptempo pace. We like to describe it as comfortably hard. So that’s how you wanna feel when you’re doing it. And you do a little 15 minute cool down after that.
