Hi everyone,

Just wondering what a good sort of pace (minute/mile) is for distance runs. Not necessarily looking at 1.5 mile return pace as that should be best effort regardless of maintaining a pace, more so looking at what type of pace you should be maintaining over a 3,5 and 8 mile run respectively. @arny01 , your advice would be much appreciated.

Regards,

Duff

When I was in Training we were running 7.30sec mile sometimes less.

The first run if you are looking for coming at around 12minutes. Then 8minute miles should be spot on time. I work in km’s and I did the run at 5minutes per km
