Running by Feel vs Running by Pace

In endurance training, is it better to run by feel or run by pace? Does it even matter? Why does it matter? 

When I surveyed you all for your top training questions, many of you asked me questions about pace. I thought that I would do a little series on the blog over the next few weeks or months that breaks down pacing strategies for training and racing, ranging from determining the correct pace for particular workouts to pacing strategies for the races themselves to how to learn to “feel” a pace while running. Not a runner? II would still encourage you to take a look–these are universal training concepts (remember the concept of periodization from the common training terms post? I rest my case!)

Running by Pace vs Running by Feel: which is best for marathon training? Find out at Suzlyfe.com

Running by Feel

Insert meme of Ricky Bobby saying he thought he could feel it. And someone saying That’s what she said. 

For the purpose of this discussion, when I say “running by feel,” I am discussing running according to how your feel at the time.  There is another kind of running by feel which is running by effort, which is different from running by feel.

So what is Running By Feel? 

  • Listening to your body, your mind, you emotions, and being guided by those feelings over what is “appropriate”
  • “Intuitive Running”
  • Example: “I’m feeling good, let’s rip it up!” or “Ugh, legs are like lead, let’s call it in.”

Pros of Running by Feel:

  • By listening to your body, you develop a more developed ability to do so–you will be able to read your body’s signals and listen to what it is telling you. 
  • Running by feel makes you highly self reliant and more likely to respect your body’s cues.
  • Wooohoooo you will enjoy your run! You will do what you want, when you want, and each run will be what you “need” each time you go out.

Cons of Running by Feel:

  • Sometimes, our bodies send mixed signals–you might not realize how much you are overdoing it (ie running too fast, too often) until it is too late.
  • Burning out early in a race–WOOOHOOOO LET”S RUN omg I’m dying. 
  • On the other hand, you can find that you get stuck in doing what is “comfortable,” and find yourself stuck in a rut. Thus, you run the risk of missing certain milestones.

Running by Pace:

On the other end of the spectrum, we have what I will call Running by Pace. When I refer to Running by Pace, I am describing running by a pre-determined, or set pace. Bring out the Garmin and training plans, people!

What is Running by Pace?

  • Listening to your marathon training plan
  • “Meal Plan Running”
  • Example: “I have 8 miles today at 8:00 min/mile pace, with the last 3 miles at 7:30 min/mile.”

Pros of Running by Pace:

  • Provides structure and guidance during the course of the week. You will know what is expected of you the next morning, the next minute
  • The right plan with the right paces can get you to the start and finish lines happy, healthy, and not burnt out.
  • WOOOHOOO look at me! Running by pace offers concrete proof that you are improving!
  • This type of training will get you more personal best, PR Race “ready” by prescribing workouts BUT…

Cons of Running By Pace:

  • But… you will only be race ready if the proper paces are prescribed, and you know what paces are necessary to hit in order to reach your goals. 
  • Higher risk of burn out or injury by pushing yourself too hard, mentally or physically. Worried about runner burn out?
  • Numbers, numbers, numbers. You can get caught up in the numbers and feel discouraged if you aren’t improving the way that you feel that you should.

Important Points to Keep in Mind:

We are dynamic individuals!

Setting paces is akin to setting the hours of time for sleeping, the number of calories that you are eating per day, etc. Thus, there are standards and “optimal” levels, but you must remember that we are dynamic individuals; some days we need more, some days we need less. And, as many runners find out, we may think that we are fitter than we really are!

It is important to focus on listening to your body (even though, as previously noted, they can be a bit misleading). There are going to be days when we are supposed to do speed work and lay it down, and it just. isn’t. there. or, even worse, you feel that you are getting a niggling injury. There will be times when we just need to cut ourselves some slack, or we just have a terrible run. That is OK. Quality is more important than Quantity. I would rather you skip a speed workout than burn out because you just can’t give it your all. That said, sometimes, you need to step up to the plate and work it out. That is where listening to yourself and your body comes in: are you just feeling blah, or are you blah? Will this turn around after 10 minutes, or is this a wash?

Running Strategy: When should you run by pace and when should you run by feel?

Coach Suz advice: In my opinion, the best strategy is the training plan that combines the two. I incorporate both feel and paced runs into my clients programs. I give paces for them to keep in mind for each of their runs, but I also talk about how those paces should feel, because, as I will discuss in later posts about choosing paces, sometimes, pacing is elusive!

I hope that you have a better idea of whether running by feel or running by pace is good for you and your workout! More training discussion to come!

    I am definitely a “run by feel” runner. I’m just too paranoid about injury. Most of my training is kind of a combination of “feel” and “pace.” I have a plan, but I’m also mindful (subjectively LOL) of modifying as needed. That said, I have always done my training on my own, without the advice and counsel of a coach. So……maybe I need an intervention (?) 😉

    Great post! I like running by both pace and feel depending on what my goals are. If I’m training for a race with a specific faster time, I need some pace guidelines, or I will not push myself hard enough. However, I don’t like running like that all the time 🙂

    I’ve had the best success when I train with a combo of the two. Right now, post-injury, I’m running only by feel. Even then it’s not a concrete pace and every run is different! The tricky thing will be to decide when I’m ready to transition to running by pace.

    I tend to run more by perceived effort, which I guess is by feel but also gives the trainig stimulus of running by pace. Since pace can vary so much based on external factors like wind and temperature, I’ll focus on my breathing and other cues. Usually the paces are consistent as well, much more than when I just focus on a number.

    February 2, 2016 at 8:07 am
    • Reply suzlyfe

      I have another post about running by RPE, which I think is even more beneficial than running by feel. I feel like being tied to paces can just pigeonhole us, often, but then so can running by feel. Breathing is such a telltale sign of fitness–including recovery.

    Great information here! I would say I run by effort most often but definitely in training I am focused on hitting paces of the training plan because most often, I’m shooting for a certain finish time. How do you go about determining the appropriate pace for training runs? And if you’re training for a specific PR, how often should you be running at that goal race pace?

    Up until about a year ago I never tracked my pace. I didn’t own a Garmin and I didn’t carry my phone with GPS tracking on it. I’d run by feel! And now that I track my pace (about 50% of the time) I’ll notice that some days I feeeeel like I’m flying and I’m not, or other days my legs feel like tanker trucks but my splits are insane. It just goes to show that what you said is SO right: Our bodies are dynamic. It’s pretty incredible! Oh and to answer your question about who is doing the farting on the voice messages I send out to Jake and Andrew?

    I pretty much only run by feel, except during races. I rarely wear a watch because I know how far most of my routes are, so the only time I know my pace is if I’m running a new-to-me distance or route. I think i need to work harder on pacing this year though so I avoid dying early in the marathon like last year.

    I get obsessive about pace, and the desire to get “fast” (quotes because it is all relative) When I was coming back from the flare I just didn’t care I was so happy to be running. I was running pretty slow for the most part. Somehow the fitness and pace returned as I PR’d a lot in the fall season! Now I am actively trying to get that HM PR but I also try to not get too wrapped up in it. Most of my easy runs are done without my Garmin. I know in theory it is all those easy slow miles that help me progress but some times seeing that 10-11 min pace is like really? let’s get this over with! My two strict workout days are another story – I am trying to hit paces those days. I will say the one factor that I think hurts my training is treadmill running. I love the treadmill but you know what pace you are set at and at least for myself, my brain will tell me it is hard and that translates to my running. Like today running below 8:30 on the TM for 4+ miles – in my head I am like oh this is hard but the reality was a was just out of my comfort zone.

    I run by pace for obvious reasons, as you know from my consult. If I run by feel completely I will burn myself out or injure myself. The most obvious example is when I messed up my pace on my last HM. I thought I had run 8:08 miles previously, so I was running that, finished the race, and looked at my time. Whoops! I had been running 8:48 miles previously. My body has been hurting or bugging me my whole life, if I’m not careful I forget to eat and sometimes go to the bathroom for hours if I get distracted/focused. Since I don’t spend most of my time in pain anymore it’s easy to ignore the little things. I have a strategy for my Marathon pace wise, I’m going to be holding myself back until mile 22 or so, then I’ll let it do whatever it wants for the finish as long as it finishes.

      Yes, I can definitely attest to this! But I also know that you are smart enough to listen to good advice, and to seek it out, which believe you me, is a huge part of the battle. I know so well what you mean to take a bit too much advantage of feeling good, feeling fine–I did that for my first marathon, and it got me in big trouble. But you are doing great, and I am so proud of you!

    My coach for the marathon had me doing this pretty much. He wouldn’t assign me paces, but “gears” for my breathing. Sometimes I would be super speedy in one gear and other days I would be slower! It really worked for me!

      I know you had great success with this method! I actually thought about you while writing it!

    I’m a long time runner by pace and I’m currently trying to run more by feel. The problem is, I can’t stop thinking about pace! Even when I don’t wear a watch, I can’t stop thinking about how fast I’m going and I can never really slow down. I have a real problem actually making easy runs easy. Any tips?

      Try singing a song to yourself, or use a song that is slower–you will be less likely to go all out! Do you have any friends that are a bit slower that can pace you? Most importantly, RELAX. Focus on your form, the scenery–slow down and take everything in. Breathe in and out with measured breaths–try 1 in, 3 out. Experimenting with methods like that might help! Let me know–I’ll be interested to know how you improve.

        Thanks for the tips! I think I’ll make an easy running playlist for slower runs. Part of my problem may be that I listed to the same fast and upbeat songs for all my runs. I’ll try the breathing tip too! Focusing on that instead of pace should help me slow down.
