I place a lot of emphasis on my long runs at the end of the week, and if I miss it then I always feel it's a wasted week of training regardless of how well its gone. I've had a tight Achilles this week and after resting it over the last couple of days and cross-training it feels fine, but I've had to miss my planned 15 miler today. I'm just interested if this "make or break" attitude towards the LR is healthy, and how long you all went between LR's without feeling like you lost any fitness? I have gone 4 weeks between a Half Marathon and my next LR (16 miles), but what do you guys think? Any advice you can give would be massively appreciated!
