I'm devouring training plans as I look forward to a winter/spring training schedule and I swear it doesn't matter how many times I read them, I still don't know how to work in these specialty runs.
I don't know the difference between my 5K pace, my 10K pace and my 1/2 pace. I have running and not running. My runs are almost always the same pace. Is it better to do these training runs on a treadmill to monitor speed and distance, or is it possible to learn to feel the different paces?
Any advice on how to learn the feel of these workouts is greatly appreciated!
