Hi Sair and Jonesy... thanks for the comments. Want to make sure I understand tempo runs correctly. I googled: "How to run a tempo run"
A classic tempo or lactate-threshold run is a sustained, comfortably hard effort for two to four miles.
GOAL: 5-K to 10-K Run three easy miles, followed by two repeats of two miles at 10-K pace or one mile at 5-K pace. Recover with one mile easy between repeats. Do a two-mile easy cooldown for a total of eight or 10 miles.
When I said 10mile tempo, the above is what I meant to do. Sorry for the confusion. In any event, I'll be running comfortably hard for at the most 20-25 minutes. I'll have 25 min warmup and about that much for the cooldown. Should make for 10 miles.
Jonesy, hang in there and listen to your body. You know what you're doing.
