Paddy’s patter

My coach, a very wise man, told me that you don’t run faster without running faster. That’s why we have been working on our shorter speed sessions these last few weeks.
I hope you all took part in the 2 mile TT last week, this week we have the 1 mile TT…
Let’s all enjoy the week πŸ’šπŸ’›

Here’s the science bit, all times below based on running at 8 mins per mile for a 10k. You may need to adjust the timings for your own individual pace.

Following feedback we’ve created a pace calculator to allow you to work out your target paces easily, just enter your target 10k time in the h:mm:ss format and let it do the hard work for you.
For example 45 minutes would be 0:45:00, 65 minutes would be 1:05:00
