I've struggled for years to come up with a great way to explain tempo pace to my athletes. This summer I've been working on some of my own pace charts and ways of simplifying all of the different terminology that gets thrown around in books and on the internet.
Take a look and see what you think. I'm of course open to constructive criticism and willing to answer questions. Yes, I know that it's a big ask to expect kids to read through all of this stuff, but my best ones do read what I post then explain it to the other kids.
