>Running 101>Did I run too fast?
"I've been following Eddy's improvement over the last two years on this site, and it's been pretty dang solid. Sure the weekly mileage has been up and down, but over the long haul he's getting out the door and has turned himself into quite a runner. He's only now just figuring out his potential. Consistency in running is measured in years, not weeks. And over the last couple of years, Eddy's made great strides" Jeff 14 Jan 2009
thanks for the advice, I will definitely do the tempo run then later on in the week. I will do 5 miles, what pace should I do this at then? And should I do it in 1 mile repeats or? I am confused as there is vo2 and lactic tolerance to bear in mind. How on earth do you know how hard to push?

"Perhaps the best way to train is to spend the maximum-possible amount of time running at a pace which is closely related to the demands (or pace) of the race you're shooting for, without getting overtrained."
So maybe tempo intervals are better than regular tempo runs, in that regard. I don't know that I'll change things up drastically, based on that, but it was definitely interesting.
