As mentioned, the majority of your long runs should be completed as Long Slow Distance Runs. I suggest doing the faster long run workouts every other week or every three weeks.
If you have completed any long distance training or racing, I’m sure you have plenty of stories about your long run. We change meal plans, re-arrange our weekends, and wake up extra early to complete our weekly long miles. When it’s over, we feel like we could achieve almost anything!
Have you ever stopped to consider what your long run means to your training? Do you complete all your long runs at the same pace?
