3 x 10min (60min RP) w/2-min jog rest
These ain't your grandma's tempo runs! 60-min race pace isn't very comfortable, but it is a highly effective speed to train your body to use lactate as fuel and build aerobic endurance for basically every race distance.

Bryan's Sunday Morning Long Run:
A good long run around Davis, looks out for his emails
An extraordinary day of racing at National Club XC Championships for runners and spectators.
New runners are encouraged to try this speed workout out. The warm-up pace is relaxed and we often do the faster paced intervals at a track or a loop where it is hard to get lost or left behind. This is the best attended workout and a great way to work on your form, up your game, and meet club members.
Thursday nights-5:45 p.m. Distance ranges from 5 - 8 miles and the pace is easy to a hard tempo. Note: Plan to leave FF by 5:55 in order to get back by 7 pm.
Saturday mornings-8:00 a.m. Standard distances are 7 - 10 miles usually at an easy, social pace, but you can usually count on a few to kick in a brisk, tempo run. Marathoners often tack on 3 - 10 miles. About 15 - 25 runners show, but only a few may be there if there is a big local race. We often grab breakfast afterwards.
GVH members receive additional e-mail announcements of additional workouts, trail runs, races, uniform buys, and social events.
