As for paces of speedwork, you're trying to train different aspects of running, whether energy systems or neuromuscular systems or something else. In order to best train these different systems, you have to train at paces faster, slower, and equal to race pace.

this reminded me of the McMillan site that has a detailed desciption of WHY you need to train at cetain paces (just like Ryan says, to train certain systems)… the chart sets up the old “picture is worth a thousand words”…
