You'd be surprised at how long thirsty runners can go. After we made it all the way around, we went back to England for more beer and the fireworks.

LOL

I'm picturing Walt congratulating everyone and Rick from the Walking Dead running up and shooting his head off. DD would be thrilled. She loves zombies.

Tempo runs are longer, and usually run at a "comfortably hard" pace. My tempo runs are about 5 miles right now (not counting warm up and cool down), based on my training plan. Not run at race pace, but not relaxing either.

Fartleks are short bursts of speed. The idea being that you may be doing a 45 minute run, but 1 or 2 minutes of that run are very hard. They differ from intervals in that they are usually unstructured, and usually shorter than what I would typically do on "interval day"

I very rarely do fartleks. My speed days are usually tempo runs, or sturctured interval training. That is just my preference though, there is really nothing wrong with them. Once in a while I will do them at the end of an easy run, just to teach my body how to "kick" at the end.

Real quick explanations 1. Fartlek is Swedish for "speed play." These are random bursts of speed of random length/duration. It's a fun way of doing some fast running without structure. I used to do it by saying, "I'm gonna run fast for the next three telephone poles" or something like that. These runs help train your body to run fast, but without the pressure of running certain distances, number of reps, or times. 2. Intervals are usually shorter distance fast repetitions, often done on a track. An example would be to run 6x800m with 3 minute recoveries. This means you run 800m fast (at the pace you might run a 5k or faster), then jog 3 minutes really easy to recover. Repeat a total of 6 times. Standard interval distances are 200m, 400m, 800m, 1000m, 1600m. These are "red-line" type workouts which force your body to run under duress. Interval training increases your overall speed, you VO2max (the maximum amount of oxygen your system can uptake -- more is better), but are usually strenuous enough to not be undertaken more than twice a week, and only then after you've developed a mileage base. These are the tune-up you do in the 8~12 weeks prior to a big race, not a year-round type workouts. The longer your target race, typically the longer the interval. Most interval workouts are done at 5k pace or faster. I should note that intervals do not have to always be distance based, nor do all intervals have to be the same length. Examples would be 5 x 3 minutes fast with 3 minute recoveries, or a time based interval like this one, which is one of my favorites. 3. Tempo runs are 20~30 minute runs done at a pace 10~20 seconds per mile slower than your 10k pace. These sustained efforts are done after a mile or two of easy jogging, and are usually followed by a mile or two of cool-down. Thus, a typically tempo run would be 2mi easy warm-up / 20 min TEMPO / 2 mile easy cool-down. These runs help your body tolerate a relatively fast pace for a longer duration -- they are good endurance workouts, and are especially good for 15k and up training.

Ever accidentally run more than the training plan called for? We had a 3.5 mile last night. I should mention we had weekend company and had missed two prior training runs. We headed out on a new trail, and checked the mileage we did in the car afterwards. We did over 4 miles, unplanned. And on pace. Whew! I had sore jello legs at the end, but was pretty proud of our "mistake". I guess we just jumped up a week on our training.

Sometimes. I don't follow a plan as much as I have weekly mileage goals for myself, and I play around with each run depending on how I feel to get there. My goal this week is 42, so I have fun figuring out different ways to get there. The only thing I almost always do according to plan is my long run, because of how tricky it gets regarding the long run and percentage of your weekly miles. I am a stickler for under 33%.

Olympics

DH wants to run for his home country for the Rio Olympics. He is 28 now and running about a 8 min/mile I know he needs to get to 4.5 min/mil pace. Any suggestions on how to support him in his training? He is wanting to run the 10,000 Meters.

He also doesn't want me to tell his family and friends. I think he is afraid of failing.

I know he can do it because he keeps improving his pace every race we run.

No offense, but it's beyond virtually impossible to improve that much. We have local guys who can run about a 5:00 pace now who will never dream of qualifying for the Olympics.

Thank you for your opinion. I am looking for ways to support and encourage him.

If he can sustain an 8 minute mile now for a marathon, he could work on getting a Boston Qualifier, which is a 3:05 marathon at his age, which is a 7:04 pace.
