A Bad Great Run

How can a great run be bad? When you are struggling to follow the plan and slow down.

I know it probably sounds crazy that I’m saying it was bad to be going too fast, when many may feel like they can’t ever get faster. My problem is that I can’t sustain my faster pace for an entire full marathon, and I question even a half marathon right now.

When I start too fast I use up so much energy that I hit a big wall too early on. Part of the reason for slower long runs is to build up endurance. Just pounding out the miles as fast as you can all the time will not get you to the point of having the endurance you need for long distances, like a marathon.
