Welcome to Sam, who is my newest blog partner in my Run Bloggers Unite! project. If you’d like to partner with me, please let me know!
As someone who absolutely hates using marathon training plans, I’m pretty willy nilly when it comes to my running schedule while preparing for a race.
I know I need to get in a certain amount of miles per week, and that I need to do some regular long runs to get ready for a marathon. I’ve also learned from experience that I HAVE to get in a run of at least 22 miles prior to running my race. I’m not at all sure how people can be ready for a full 26.2 miles when the longest you’ve run to date is only 20 miles?!?!
Oh, it’s because your training plan said to only do a 20 miler. Have fun on race day, bud.
