Reply To: establishing pace times
You don’t want to start with the end. That is probably the best way to look at it. It is a process to get to that end goal time, also the goal time should be determined by the training. Its great to want to go from 48.7 to a 46.9 but it must be realistic. The only way to be realistic is to start with what you know they are capable of (their actual best time) then progress through the season and track their improvement percentage on protocol sets.
