Looking for some advice on how to set up two running speed goals. I want to get my 5k pace down to 8 minutes per mile and run a single mile in 7 minutes.
I’m not sure how to do this from a practical standpoint. Tracking individual run speed won’t work well as a do less goal given the wide variance of runs based on training distance and variation in weather, sickness, fatigue from other exercise.
There’s a couple of things I could track as supportive goals (Mileage/week, times running/week, cadence) but that’s not the actual goal/what I want to do.
I think it would almost work well to just allow a really big variance +/- the goal on a weight loss goal but still give my speed each run so I could see the average moving down but I don’t believe I have an option to set that variance directly
Anyone have any thoughts on this?
