|Subject: ||RE: 5 Key Marathon Workouts|
Just my experience...If I go farther than 22mi in practice recovery takes a lot longer and I wonder whether the extra mile or three is worth it.
I also like broken-pace running for marathon training -- a favorite is a 10-12 mile run set up as follows:
-- 10 minutes at your regular training pace (steady state pace, or SSP)
-- 5 x 2:00 acceleration...paced like running a 1200 rep on the track...with the rcovert interval being 2:00 at your SSP.
-- 10 minutes at SSP
-- another 5 x 2:00 set, same recovery at SSP
-- Finish run at SSP.
