Today we take a look at what actually is tempo, explaining the difference or even similarities with the "Tempo" done by distance runners. Break down the terms of tempo and discusses the correct use within a polarised training methodology.
Tempo running is defined as running performed at 65 – 75% percent of one’s maximum speed. What is important on how to perform tempo is you want the last rep of your runs to be the same speed as the first runs. For example, if you are not able to complete 10 repetitions of 100 meters at an even speed, start with a shorter distance and improve that distance over a few weeks. You might also try slowing the overall speed down. To improve the quality of your tempo running monitor by hand timing your runs and making sure you are consistent with short breaks.
Tempo performed in The General Preparation Phase of training (GPP) will be different than all other phases of training, which include SPP and pre competition and competitive season training.--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/sports-performance/message
