Video — Optimal paces for speed workouts

It’s time for Episode 9 in our continuing series of discussions about all things marathon running. We pick up the conversation back on Runner’s Rock in the Arizona desert with a gripping discussion about the different paces that are used in speed workouts.

In this episode Coaches Dean and Joe discuss:
— 5K and 10K paced workouts
— Optimal paces for speed work
— Why you might need to run your speed workout slower than you might like to.
— How much of your weekly running work should be at these elevated paces.

This video is part of our Desert Series, in which Coaches Joe English and Dean Hebert get their lips smackin’ about all things marathon running. There are over 30 episodes in the series and they come out every week on
