In an infinite universe, the one thing sentient life cannot afford to have is a sense of proportion

a lot of people take their long runs easy. i think that the long run should be a very difficult workout, run at a pace faster than your easy pace.
I find this comment interesting. Most of what I have read or heard has indicated that long runs should be easy. I even read one person say that long runs can never be too easy.
I have been running my long run at about the same pace as my easy runs. This typically makes my long runs more of a moderate effort, harder than an easy run just due to length, but easier than tempo run, intervals, etc.
How much faster do you run than easy pace? marathon pace? something else? Also, including this long effort, how many other hard efforts are you running throughout the week?
I have been running everyday and trying to get two hard efforts and one medium effort which is my long run.
