Run Test (3-Mile Time Trial):
• Do this test on a track or other measured course
• Warm up by running for 10 minutes starting easy and gradually increasing
your speed. End
where you will start your time trial.
• Clear your watch and heart-rate monitor (as applicable to you) and run
three miles as fast as you can. To do this well, you need to really keep
your pacing even and not go too hard/fast too soon. Again, you want to
cover the three miles as quickly as possible, not go real fast and then slow
down. Note: If your heart-rate monitor does not measure average heart
rate, note your heart rate with one mile to go, with1/2 mile to go, and at the
completion of your time trial.
• Walk 10 minutes very easy to cool-down.
• Later on, calculate your average pace by converting your time to
minutes:seconds per mile.
• Later on, calculate your average heart rate, if necessary, by averaging the
three heart rates you noted.
• your can input your pace and heart rate into training peaks to calcite your heart rate and pace zones.
