>Racing>Broad street run 2012...
a really great workout to build endurance for the 10 mile to half marathon distance is 3 x 2 mile repeats. I tend to do the first one a little slower than goal pace, the second at goal pace, and the last one a little under. Its a tough workout, and a time consuming one, but it pays off huge. Long runs will help, and dont also forget to stay up on leg speed stuff, like 400m repeats at 2 mile pace.

Sweet...I've done 2 x 2 mile thus far at a little faster than 10k pace. The workout was tough and thus didn't make it through the 3rd one. I might try that this weekend. If I'm right, the whole goal is to get the lactate threshold pace as quick as possible and then ramp up the efficiency with some quicker stuff(400's at 2mile pace I guess). The longest I've gone in the past month is 13 miles(1:33) because with a newborn and a 2 year old the wifieeee isn't too happy with my disappearing act! I'd agree that another few long runs would be nice...but maybe not possible.
