A long run, the day after a big race, was a bit slow, and took some time before you felt decent. After we ran in Washington Park in Portland in 1978, we got out on trails the next day and put in a nice 12-15 miles. Of course, in the first weekend in November, it was cold and the trails were inviting. We spoke about the racing the day before and how much we went in single file except for the last several hundred meters to the finish.

Long runs are great time for introspection. Take the time to consider your races, your training, and your life.

Enjoy!
