As a coach, I know that if I tell a runner to run a certain distance at an “easy” pace, it is very likely the runner will complete the run at her habitual pace, which is likely to fall in the moderate-intensity range. And if I ask the runner afterward if she ran easy as instructed, she will say that she did.
