RE: How to determine lactate threshold pace?
Scorpion_runner doesn't understand tempo at all and is very mis-guided. 18 min 5k is not 6 min pace, by the way.

The easiest way to find tempo pace (which DOES NOT CHANGE based on the distance you are running) is to look up up your current vdot number and then look at Daniels pace chart. You can get all that free online.

This pace Daniels gives will be an approximation. I use it in conjunction with a heart rate monitor (85%-90% range) and pay attention to how I feel, specifically breathing.

Hope this helps. And don't listen to Scorpion_runner.
