I'm running my first marathon later in the year and have been looking at various training plans. However, i have noticed that the longest run on any of them seems to go no further than 20-22 miles during training. Maybe i'm being naive or missing something but why not run 26.2 miles in training or further...why not train for 30 miles and make 26.2 not seem as far? sorry if this sounds too simple.
