      Hi Lynda. In regards to the race pace days in the Masters 50 mile training plan is it OK to have occasional efforts on medium climbs (5-10 minutes) or long climbs(as long as one hour) were I go hard and into high threshold/anaerobic and then after settle into a tempo/threshold zone as prescribed or is the idea to avoid extreme efforts like this on race pace days?

      Thanks

      Daum,

      The idea is to limit efforts like this to nail optimal pacing on race day. Save those efforts for interval training when the focus is increasing fitness. On race day and during race-pace sessions the focus is dialing in your optimal most efficient pace.
