Long runs are a key part of the long distance and middle distance runner’s training program. Long runs are more fun when run with friends. If you are sore from yesterday, keep it easy and shorten the run if need be.
The key is consistency, so remember to build and focus. And have fun!

Sunday: Long run of 65-70 minutes, run with friends, on soft ground, and keep pace relaxed. If you are sore from yesterdays’ race, then run easy and cut back to 45-50 minutes.
Remember to cool down.
