RBR Summer mileage, Week Five, Day Seven, the Long Run, from RunBlogRun


The long run is one of the most important workouts of your week. Arthur Lydiard, the great coach, noted that long runs build endurance, and strength. 

The long run should be included each week for a middle and long distance runner.

Sunday: warm up, 60-65 minute run, cooldown

Today is a long run. Run in a park, with some hills, vary the terrain and surfaces. The goal is to stay on your feet for the entire time, running at conversational pace.
