  • Start at 0515 and Warm-up for 10 minutes at 2nd F pace
  • At 0525, start a Tempo run for 40 minutes. A great guide for your pace / effort will be Marathon Pace spelled out by the calculator at http://runsmartproject.com/calculator . If you need instructions, read http://runsmartproject.com/calculator/instructions. Hint, input a recent Race personal best, click Calculate, click Training tab to view Marathon pace.
  • While at the track, leave at a time that will get you back to the AO by 0610 (usually between 0550 and 0555).  Run in any lane on the track, but stay in outside lanes if running opposite direction (clockwise).
