In our programs, Sundays, day 7 of week 4, is all about the long runs. Keep it relaxed and get on soft ground. Especially the day after racing, keep it relaxed and keep the pace at a talking pace.
We will build long runs from 60 minutes to 90 minutes over the season. Long runs help build endurance and give you the time to consider your week, your training and what you want to get out of running.
Runners at all levels do better with a program built for them. Des Linden, the 2018 Boston Marathon Champion, won the race in the worst conditions in almost a century.
