I am in the long miles weeks of a marathon plan-marathon mid May
This will be my first marathon-hoping for 3:30 ish
My long training run yesterday was scheduled for 22 miles.
I am having problems with the pacing of my long runs-keep runing them to fast so I have decided I will stop constantly looking at the garmin and just run at a comfortble pace.
Yesterday i did this with the occasional check at the garmin I knew it was to fast but it feel ok-ish, I slightly miscalculated my route and got back home at 23.3 miles in 3:03 was very tempted to continue for the 2.9 miles which would have made it a my first marathon run (longest before this 20 miles) and how i felt I am sure it would have been just sub 3:30.
I have over trained in the past to long/to fast/ to much and suffered with injury so really trying to stick to my plan this time, so i eneded the run at 23.3.
Now I am going over and over it should I have keept going got a sub 3:30 in the bag eventhough it my have hindered next weeks quality sessions??
