For those of you who have run a marathon before, what is the longest run you did in the weeks leading up to the race?
I have 10 weeks of training to go and my current plan of increased distances are:
- 2 weeks from now: 20-21 miles
- 4 weeks from now: 21-22 miles
- 6 weeks from now: 22-23 miles
I wasn't sure of how I would be handling the distances when I started this plan but I seem to be holding up well and recovering quickly.
I had a comment from Matt from Maui Runner on my last blog entry, who anticipated my question (somehow) and he thought I could go to 24 miles or so. I think I could and still have time to do a proper taper before race day.
So what do you say? Stick to the plan or up the mile ranges by 1 for my next three longest runs?
