A Tempo Run is where you start slower than your race pace that you are working for. You then gradually increase your speed up to your race pace in the middle of your run. Try to maintain it for 15-25 minutes around the middle of the run. Follow this example of a 6 mile run and just tailor it to your distance and speed!

  • Mile 1: 8:00 Minutes
  • Mile 2: 8:00 Minutes
  • Mile 3: 6:30 Minutes
  • Mile 4: 6:30 Minutes
  • Mile 5: 6:30 Minutes
  • Mile 6: 8:00 Minutes

This is a great way for runners to learn how to control their running while still getting in some speed and strength work.  Have a Great Run!!
