8/ 26.2 PRE­DIC­TOR

Runner's World (UK) - - Training -

WHY ‘Long runs are great marathon pre­dic­tors be­cause a marathon is just one re­ally long run,’ says Hen­wood.

HOW Run at your marathon pace for 10-14 miles of a 20-mile long run. Take the av­er­age mile time from your race-pace miles and mul­ti­ply it by 26.2. Do this run five weeks be­fore race day for in­ter­me­di­ate run­ners; and a sec­ond time two weeks later for ad­vanced run­ners. (Be­gin­ners should skip this work­out and use their lon­grun pace as a goal race pace.)
