Friday after work you're ready to chill, maybe grab some dinner or something and unwind. You wake up Saturday full of energy and ready to start the weekend. That's the best time to get in the long run. Once that's knocked out you can enjoy your weekend.
Sunday long runs are a ritual that don't make sense to me.
Agree. During base season, long run on Saturday, Sunday completely off or cross train. One option during the season, assuming Saturday race, is to do the long run on Monday, working a tempo progression in toward the end of the run. Then the really hard workout session on Wednesday.
