How to Run Longer

‘The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep. And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep.’~~Robert Frost


I remember running 5 miles for the first time. It was epic.

Then, the epic 5-miler turned into 8 miles, and soon I was running a 10-miler every few weeks. I would think about the 10 mile run all week long. And after running it, the rest of my day would be awesome, no matter what happened, I knew I had run 10 miles that day.

Now, as an ultrarunner long runs are in the 20-30 mile range or longer. But, I still love them, and look forward to them.

Everybody’s definition of a long run is going to be different. For one person it may  be 5 miles, for another, 30 miles.

No matter how long it is, enjoy it and keep building.

I suggest at least having a long run of 10 miles.


Because a 10 mile run will build your endurance and confidence, and it will let you experience that long run feel.
