Understanding Your Natural Running Pace

Other studies have produced similar results. When given the freedom to go by feel, exercisers consistently choose an exercise intensity that is toward the high end of the comfortable range in relation to the duration of the workout they are trying to complete. Why this particular level of exertion? I believe it represents a compromise between two competing desires that the brain manifests in every exercise session: the desire to complete the task as quickly as possible (in other words, to get the workout over with) and the desire to feel comfortable. So your natural running pace — whether it’s 9 minutes per mile, 7:30 per mile, or 6:15 per mile — represents the running-specific version of this compromise relative to your individual running ability.
