how do I train to run at a certain speed? (for eg. running a 10K or a 1/2 at ~6mph).
I am comfortable running 6mph currently. I have been using the RunKeeper app which shows me my run summary (at every mile and at the end of the run)
But are there are any tools to help run at a certain speed without having to check the speed and correct oneself regularly.
to make it more second nature after sometime so that i dont have to rely on the learning aid like music.
For instance, music - bpms can be used for setting the pace to workout @ the gym.
Have you tried a metronome app? It will provide a beat to run to, and some can play in the backgroud with other apps/audio running. It's just a bit of a learning curve to figure out what BPM will match your goal cadence.
Thanks very much. I will give it a try this weekend.
