In this episode, we talk about the long run and answer some frequently asked listener questions such as why we do not need to train up to our full race distance, why we need to run the long run at a slow and easy pace, and what happens if we run the long run too hard. We discuss the physiological changes that occur when we train and how that enables us to run faster on race day.
