How do you measure your run workouts? By time, distance or does it depend on the run?

Other workouts are intended to develop the physiological attributes needed to race faster. Threshold runs are one example. These consist of a moderately prolonged period of running at anaerobic threshold intensity (or the pace just below which you begin to struggle for breath) sandwiched between a warm-up and a cool-down. Most runners, whether fast or slow, can sustain their threshold pace for about an hour. It’s easy to see why when you consider that 5 miles of threshold-pace running will take 40 minutes for an athlete whose threshold pace is 8:00 per mile, but only 30 minutes for an athlete whose threshold pace is 6:00 per mile. A 5-mile threshold run is therefore a much harder workout for a slower athlete. To get the same level of challenge and benefit, a slower athlete needs to run an equal duration at threshold pace as a faster athlete (30 minutes), but a shorter dist...
