I vowed to keep up with this thread this time but it moves on so fast so I apologies if this has been asked already…
I’m doing the up to 70 miles plan and this week a 22 miler is scheduled.
Never run this far before in training. I did the up to 55 mile plan four times with maximum runs of 20 miles.
Do I need to fuel for this during the run? I will be running for around 3H30. Haven’t fuelled for the 20 milers.
Is it more important in training to finish the 22 miles with fuel or would there be more benefit if I got to just over 20 miles and crashed through lack of?
