      Is it normal to have a hard time staying in Zone 3: Tempo? I can easily go over Tempo and stay. The same for staying in Zone 2, fairly easy.

      Yes if you have a weak spot in that part of your physiology spectrum. You have to train it to be good at it.

      Ok, thank you! Should I alter my training plan to include more Tempo training? I am on week #4 of 50 miler finisher plan.

      No, but when it is on the plan, do focus and put in the extra effort it will take to nail it.
