Do you have your heart set on a certain finishing time for your next race?

Most runners are racing to see if they can go farther or faster than before, which means that you’ll be in uncharted territory.

How do you KNOW what your goal pace should be?

You can't.

But there are some good ways to at least figure out if you are being realistic or ridiculous with your goal pace.

In today's episode of The Planted Runner Podcast, I'll explore:

  • how you can get pretty darn close to predicting a realistic race goal,

  • the pros and cons of those race predictor calculators online, and

  • if you’re a 5k runner, the prediction process might just be a little easier

Unless you’ve got a crystal ball or a time machine, this is the next best way to more accurately predict what you are capable of on race day.
