The tempo run, a steady state run around lactate threshold that builds your endurance and gets you used to running comfortably hard. After a warmup, you'll hold a pace that feels good - doesn't burn - to help your body learn to run faster, further. While in this steady state, you'll look at form cues, and figure out what your feet, shoulders, chest, and arms should feel like while keeping a constant speed.
