When it comes to training for a race, we typically have a few different kinds of runs on our training plans.
Long runs. Recovery runs. Hard runs.
Each type of run serves its purpose, and the labels on the may vary slightly, but these runs are pretty standard no matter what kind of race you’re training for.
There is another kind of run that rarely shows up on a training plan but is just as common as any of the “Big 3” listed above.
And that is the social run.
