1 min slower than race pace. That is the standard that is used for tempo/threshold pace.


1. No it isn't.

No. IT's not. It should always be 1 min slower than race pace at any given distance.

if your race pace for the mile is 5 mins, and you want to do the mile at LT pace, then your pace would be 6 mins!

If your race time for the 5k is 18mins, which is a 6min pace, and you want to do a LT pace 5k run, then your pace would be 7mins!

Plus Dr. Daniels says so.[/quote]

Threshold pace per Daniels is one specific pace (roughly race pace for a 1 hour race) not a different pace for each race you run. It's about 20-30 seconds per mile slower than 5K pace, not 1 min slower.
