I also can let it go when I get back to my starting point and see my watch says 7.9 miles. Your easy runs, workouts, and long runs are all done by time.

That sounds a lot more impressive … Those are the days that matter more about the paces and the speed you are running, so use those days as your days to measure. But between nailing the fast-chug, learning to run comfortably with a belly full of liquid, and, well, holding your alcohol, the feat is much easier said than done.

Regardless of level, speed, ability, or experience, time based running programs to something to consider. Take your previous long runs in other training segments, and just run for those durations of time during this training segment. Take a peek at the official Beer Mile website, and you’ll find thousands of records divided up by country, state, age group, and brand of beer (the most popular brew is Budweiser, with 3,550 results listed as of this writing). Let’s say you would usually have a workout of 6 x 1 mile, and your goal marathon race pace would be 9 minutes per mile on average. The runner and yogi from New York, who now instructs hula-hoop fitness classes, set the Guinness world record for fastest half marathon with a hula hoop when she finished the 2012 Hollywood Half Marathon in 3:03—without dropping or stopping the hoop once. I ran using distance for many years; throughout college and in my professional running years. Running by minutes, you know exactly how long it will take, going faster doesn’t help you in any way, which means you are less likely to go faster than your body is ready and recovered to go. I am not saying I was wrong to run for distance rather than minutes in the past, it helped keep the intensity of the goals I wanted to do, BUT I believe distance training is for certain periods of our lives, and not necessarily just for when we WANT a goal bad.

It can, and even using time over distance, it is not that you can’t look at it afterwards. A post shared by Betty Hoops (@thebettyhoops). Forget about the miles, and instead, think about reaching the minutes you will be spending out there (or the equivalent). But while you are out there, in the moment, if you find yourself mentally struggling. According to YouTube’s resident drag racing enthusiast, Tesla’s mass market compact sedan clocked in an impressive 0-60 mph time of 4.66 seconds. Do all your easy runs by minutes. The harder you run, the less you can do. I have made it pretty clear that I am a fan of #nowatchme and Steve and I even created 5k/10k, half marathon and full marathon training plans that are 100% effort based, rather than pace based. It has the longest range of any EV (up to 517 miles per charge), charges faster than any other EV (20 miles of range per minute of charging), has more interior space than any EV in its class, most luggage space of any vehicle (739 liters), and has the lowest drag coefficient of any car available (0.21).
When we talk about “heel strikers,” someone running in high heels is certainly not what comes to mind. Running by time instead of distance might be just what you need, and since I gave it a try in early 2018, I haven’t looked back. Get upfront price offers on local inventory. Now we are taking it one step further with my training and the lack of structure. That way you can get your head out of the way, and just focus on getting through the minutes you have assigned.

The Empire State Building Run-Up, held every year in May, is one of the most famous and competitive of the tower races held around the country (other races take place at Chicago’s Willis/Sears Tower and the Space Needle in Seattle, Washington). I know our races are specific distances (except for if you are in the UK and you are racing cross country), but really, those should be the only measured distances, the occasions we DO want to know our pace and how fast we were able to sustain. Long runs just go by hours and hard sections go by minutes, you really can do everything here. After all, many of us have been forced at some point to complete our long runs on the ’mill when bad conditions or other responsibilities keep us inside. For women, Jenna Wrieden, a North Carolina cross-country coach, holds the half marathon treadmill record of 1:20:43, which she also set at the same Boston Expo in 2014.
