HOW TO RUN A MAGIC MILE

The one mile test is an evaluation tool that enables runners to establish training paces and race goal paces. Do not attempt a Magic Mile (one mile timed test) if you are injured.

NOTES OF INTEREST
1) Do not use a treadmill as they are not always calibrated correctly.
2) On your first Magic Mile don’t run all-out from the start – ease into your pace after the first half mile (or two laps).
3) On future Magic Miles, adjust your pace so that you run a faster time on the one mile test.

HOW TO USE THE MAGIC MILE TIME TO PREDICT RACE PACE AND SELECT TRAINING PACE (from the Galloway web site)

Take your last 4 one mile time trials
Eliminate the slowest
Average the other three

Take this average time and adjust as follows to get race pace:

Add 33 seconds for your pace for a 5K
Multiply by 1.15 for 10K pace
Multiply by 1.2 for half marathon pace
Multiply by 1.3 for marathon pace

Add 2 minutes to race pace to get training pace for the long run
Adjust for heat and humidity: slow down by 30 sec a mile for every 5 degree temperature increase above 60F
