This weekend, similar to many others, I have a long run to complete Saturday morning! The run tomorrow will be the longest I have ever run at one time and I excited but nervous. Thanks to good friends, I wont be alone for the 18 hilly miles.
The question has crossed my mind this week about what kind of pace I should be running for my long runs. Of course I have referred to the VDOT and McMillian calculators but while searching this week I came across a fun chart from Dailymile.
This chart is actually pretty accurate compared to the pacing calculators. Its just more fun to look at the chart!
This will be my first time running 18 miles so I should run it at my easy pace (8:50 min/mile) + :30-:45 seconds.
Are you running a long run this weekend? How far and what's your pace?
