Silly question, but im training for my first marathon, after completing a few halfs quite comfortably.
2 weeks ago my mileage went up to 15 and then 18 last week for my LSR(8.25), on both runs i seem to get to the last couple of miles then my body starts to give up, my finishing stretch is slightly uphill and usually into headwind, so i am needing to dig in a bit more, no fuel probs and i completely realise that these distance are new to me and my legs so i am going to feel drained. i never experienced these feelings training for my half's,
What i would like to know is,
Does your body aclimatise to these distances, and do the LSR start to feel easier.
What strectches would people recommend for hamstrings and glutes (bottled out the ice bath)
