Tonights set is 2 x 10 mins Tempo Run with a 3 min RJ in between.
Tempo runs should feel like you are working, but you should feel like you should be able to hold the pace for quite a few miles.
you should find the session comfortably hard.
The purpose of the Threshold run is to get the body used to be able to clear blood lactate.
During this session, you are teaching your body to deal with a slightly more demanding pace for a prolonged period of time.
There is a really good video here with Jack Daniels explaining Threshold Training runs. Well worth a watch its only 3 mins long.
