    <p style=”text-align: right;”>This is almost certainly a very dumb question, but I’ll ask it anyway. If a running session is scheduled to take 40 minutes, how would I know what route to take so I arrive back home, or back to the car at the end of the workout, unless I know the distance I’m running?</p>

    For then endurance and foundation runs I Run out 20 min and then turn around and come back. Most of the workouts are an even split. Those that aren’t (Fast Finish, progressive, etc.), I either do an educated guess or just run the same loop back and forth before ending. Truth is, sometimes you get it a little off at first. Over time you get a feel for how much distance you cover in a set time.

    Gerald is correct!  It’s usually easiest to run an out and back route to get the allotted time in.  As you get deeper in to training, you’ll find that you can judge your time and distance a bit easier.
