Hi Steve, I was lucky enough to be one of the Asics Bootcampers in November. Having never done a marathon before it was news to me that I should be doing long slow runs - however I'm still not sure that I understand why they're beneficial.
Also, what should I be aiming to take with me (energy and fluid wise) on 12+ mile runs?
It was great to meet all the group 4 runners on Friday!!
I'm thinking of signing up to my first 10km in a couple of weeks, I've done 5km and a half marathon, but not quite sure how to pace myself/ what last minute training would be good. Anyone got any tips?
