    Is this a real workout? what purpose could it serve?


    normal long run is 12


    Start at easy pace (9 mi/mile). every mile drop by 15 sec/mi til the last mile is 5k-10k pace. (7:05-7:30). So this is about a 8-9 mi run.


    this is in lieu of hills one week.

      Progression runs are awesome. It's about holding pace consistently and speeding up even as you might be getting tired. Give it a try! Smile
