It depends what you are trying to do. If you are trying to run 100 miles in a week, then 22 miles one day will make the 100 easier to achieve. If you are simply looking for the training effect, then 2 hours to 2:20 minutes will certainly get you that. Arthur's original schedules were written when he was working primarily with high caliber runners, as he began working with runners with less talent and loess-lofty goals, he shfted to a more time oriented shedule. His long run in those schedules is 2-2 1/2 hours.

I find that when I and most of the runners I work with run for much over 2 hours, that I spend the rest of the day recovering. If you have a full-life, running, job, home and family, that can be tough to deal with all the other parts of your life.
