RE: Does anybody here train using Daniels Running Formula
When I focus on the 1500mm - 3000m training program, I also need to use quite different VDOTs for the different paces.
I can mile in 5:10, a 64 VDOT. But I can't run a set of 5 x 1000m intervals much better than 6:00 min/mile pace, putting me around 53 VDOT. My best 10K is around 42, giving me a VDOT for T pace of about 49. My natural easy pace (about 68% of HR reserve) is about 9:20/mile, which gives an even lower E VDOT of 45. And it is not that I am untrained -- I have been doing 30-45 mile weeks for over 10 years.
That said, I like the Daniels plan. It always gets me to target races in peak form.
