Tempo Training & Injury Prevention

Tuesday April 17

Tuesday we did tempo training. Tempo training is running at a challenging steady pace that you can hold for the distance. You train close to your threshold without exceeding. It help you run faster and farther before getting fatigued. We ran a 6km loop started at UPEI to the trail, down the trail to the bypass highway back on Mt. Edward Road to Belvedere Ave. Then back to the trail and finished at UPEI. Took 32 minutes.
There is a Training Pace Calculator at Runner's World based on my Bunny Hop run these are my training paces:
Your easy run training pace is: 5:53 min/km
Your tempo run training pace is: 4:54 min/km
Your maximum oxygen training pace is: 4:25 min/km
Your speed form training pace is: 4:06 min/km
Your long run training pace is: 5:53 - 6:38 min/km
Your Yasso 800s training pace is: 3:39 min/800
