This is Sunday, August 13, 2023.
This is day 7, Week Six of the RunBlogRun 2023 Summer Mileage Program.
Long runs are part of our weekly program.
Your long runs in high school should be 65-90 minutes. Keep the pace moderate, and over the last 20-30 minutes, pick up the pace for ten minutes, then slow down over the last ten minutes.
Warm up, run for 75-90 minutes, and then cool down.
Long runs are one of the key workouts. Frosh/Soph should go no longer than 65-75 minutes. Juniors/Seniors should be able to build up to 75-90 minutes.
Remember, Junior/Seniors should consider 30-minute runs in Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The pace in those runs is quite easy.
