I'm not real sure about tempo runs - but if you post your question in the "March chat" there are some runners in there that know all about that kind of stuff!

I run just for the HEALTH of it!

So I've been reading about tempo runs, but I still don't seem to understand them. Basically, if I WANT to be running a 10:00 mile pace, then I would need to do long distance runs at a 10:20 pace? Or do I miss up some intervals in there, i.e. 5 x 3 minutes at 10:20 pace, with 1 minute of recovery jogging in between? And then up it to 4, 5, 6 minutes, etc? I think tempo runs might be a better way to push myself than with intervals. Just wondering what all of you thought...

Thanks for your help! :)
