How slow should my easy runs be?

By Sara Hall


2 months ago i ran a 5k in 19:05 , I can do 4x1600 in 6:00 with 4:30 rest in training now every other week and tempo of 4 miles at 6:50 pace, I do my easy runs at 9:00 pace are they too slow or too fast they seems just perfect to me not too fast and not too slow.I average 40 miles a week that's including my weekly 13 miles long run at 8:50 pace and I been training like this for 6 months now,(I'm 13yrs)are my easy and long runs too slow??
