Another long run
Still working up to the Seattle marathon. Saturday was the longest run yet, 18 miles. It was all flat though. Next weeks long run will have to include some hills as the marathon course contains a couple big hills.
It seems like there is a long way between 18 and 26.2 miles. The training book I've been reading advises to top out the training runs at 20 miles a few weeks before the marathon date and then slowy taper off until race day. I would have thought that you would want to run farther, but I'm following the training schedule in the book pretty closely. Hopefully, it will pay off.
