    Really I should set up my own labels

    Recovery

    Easy

    Hill

    LAT

    CV

    Vo2 Max (3k-5k)

    Faster than Vo2 Max ( Faster tha 3k)

    Trail

     

    Don't forget "ridiculously fucking long"

    It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.

      Suppose you do a 50-minute run that looks like this:

       

      10 minute warmup + 15 minutes at 10k pace + 10 minutes easy + 15 minutes at 10k pace + 10 minute cooldown

       

      Is that a tempo run or an interval run with two long intervals?

      I'd log it as "medium".

      Runners run.

        I'd log it as "medium".

         

        How about "well-done" ?

           

          How about "well-done" ?

          Not one of my workout types.

          Runners run.

            Call it what you want, it's your run.

             

            Named workouts:  Arthur, Beatrice, Claude...

            Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

              Call it what you want, it's your run.

               

              However, since you've asked -- to me, that is not a tempo workout.

               

              I't call it tempo paced intervals. I have those prescribed at times, but I never thought of giving my workouts names.

                Thanks for the replies. I guess what I titled my message was misleading. I don't really have a particular need to name my runs -- and realize that they're my runs and I can "call them what I want." (but thanks 4 the advice, MilkTruck). I guess I'm still trying to make sense of the benefits behind the different types of speed work. So thanks to those of u who provided answers that helped w that.
