How Do You Run A Tempo Run

Tempo running, or the threshold pace runs are an important component in any runner’s training plan, but what is it actually? Kristin Schulz will explain what a tempo or threshold pace run is, and how you can use it in your weekly running to run faster on your journey of becoming a lifelong injury free runner!

 

Kristen Schulz is a runner, running coach, and physical therapist. She is the owner of Run Your Life LLC and the host of Breaking 5 – A Running Podcast. She helps runners reach their next PR without nagging injuries through online run coaching and strength coaching programs. She also helps running clinicians learn how to write running plans and get their first 2-5 online clients.

Kristin and I have a great conversation on everything you need to know about the tempo run and how to incorporate it into your training.  These are just some of the questions you will get answered during this episode:

 

  •   What is a tempo run?
  •   How long is a tempo run?
  •   How do you run a tempo run?
  •   How fast should a tempo run be?
  •   Is a tempo run the same as a threshold run?

Perform from the Amino Company. Perform is an essential amino acid-based formulation that I simply add to water in my shaker bottle and have 30 minutes before my run or gym workout.  It tastes great and is easy on my stomach.  

 

 

Clinical studies have shown that Perform helps improve mental focus, peak strength, endurance, reduces fatigue, and increases muscle protein synthesis so you can recover faster from your runs or your strength workouts.   Check out the research here: https://aminoco.com/healthyrunner

 

If you’re looking for a nutritional advantage to increase focus and concentration, strength, and endurance during your runs and decrease recovery times by quickly rebuilding muscle tissue of your daily training, I highly recommend you give Perform a try.  I know it has helped me and I am confident you will love it just as much as I do!

“I can’t thank Duane and his coaching team enough, especially coach Lu, for helping me fulfill my marathon dream!!!  I have participated in the Healthy Runner Coaching Program twice now and all the coaches were very supportive. Coach Lu would adjust the training plan to my schedule which made it easier for me to follow. Duane’s strength training helped me to get stronger so I can run faster without injury.  Coach Lu’s knowledge, tips, strategies and support not just helped me finish my first marathon but crushed my goal!  I recommend the Healthy Runner coaching program 100% if you want to take your running to the next level. Just be consistent and trust the process, you will crush your next race with this team!”

“I struggled to get back into running after being diagnosed with Osteoarthritis in my left knee. A friend of mine suggested I check out the Healthy Runner podcast and I’m glad I did! I was lucky to grab a spot in the Healthy Runner Coaching Program and I have gained so much from miles away. I’ve gained tools to be a lifelong runner through the run and strength plan. I’m constantly gaining more mobility and look forward to my future of running. Duane is a great coach that gives you personalized assistance and helps you understand any questions you have! I’m definitely getting my spark back!”

 

Theresa L.

Working with Duane has been a game-changer for my running. I’ve been in an endless cycle of injuries for the past five years and needed to make a change.

I connected with Duane through his Healthy Runner Facebook group, and then we began our virtual physical therapy visits. Virtual sessions work great for me because I’m constantly traveling and can access care wherever I reside. Even though I’m not in the clinic, I still receive the same quality of experience!

The best part is Duane is a physical therapist, runner, and coach, so he understands how important running is for our physical, mental, and emotional well-being! If you want to become a stronger, healthier, and faster runner, look no further!
