How do I determine my threshold pace?
Check your heart rate at 10 minutes and then at 30 minutes and divide by two. That’s your lactate threshold heart rate. Studies have found this to be quite effective in figuring out your threshold pace, but it does require some effort—running hard for 30 minutes, but at a pace you can sustain.
What is a good running pace for triathlon?
Elite athletes can still hold a sub-six-minute-per-mile pace, but a good effort is anything faster than 8-minute miles so you complete the run in between 22 and 26 minutes.
What pace do Olympic triathletes run?
Not only are transition times mere seconds, but the overall pace is often extremely fast, hovering just above a 5-minute mile run pace. High-caliber professionals will often finish Olympic triathlons in around 2 hours or less, with the men’s record currently at just over 1 hour, 46 minutes.
