What is my aerobic running pace?

Aerobic training consists mainly of slow, easy running at around 65 percent of 5k pace, or about 65 to 70 percent of your maximum heart rate. To mix it up, you can add a few steady state runs, performed just as your aerobic threshold, but that’s about it.

What pace do professional runners run at?

According to the RunRepeat data, the average pace for a male marathon runner is 6.43 minutes per kilometre, which works out as 10.34 minutes per mile. The average pace for a female runner over 26.2 miles is 7.26 minutes per kilometre, or an 11.55 minute mile.

What pace should your easy runs be?

The body of evidence is clear: your optimal “easy” long run pace is between 55 and 75 percent of your 5K pace, with the average pace being about 65 percent. The research shows that running faster than 75% of your 5K pace on your long run doesn’t provide a lot of additional physiological benefit.

Is a higher average pace better?

Pace is an inversion of speed and is expressed in time per unit distance. Higher pace values do actually represent slower running speeds, in the same way that higher times represent slower race performances.

How running slower makes you faster?

Think of it as a way to build your body’s capacity to run faster. When you’re running slowly, your body is increasing its mitochondria and capillary production and making it easier for you to run faster the next time you face a hard training run or race.
