I Googled Tempo running as I'm supposed to be including it (whatever it is) in my training. After Googling I was more confused than I was before. Pages and pages of incomprehensible gobbldigook. Yawn. Threshold (I think) is when you run at your fastest

I thought I'd just run to my music, which is all different tempo's, and make that do. LOL!

The Good Run Guide training pace calculator explains it in simple terms:


Thanks. That links really useful for some general tips :)
