Long Run Training And Self Support

Getting in those long runs is essential for being able to run longer distances – and while the physical portion of the training can be difficult enough (and fun!) there’s more to it than just hitting the road or trail and running for several hours at a time.

Something we quickly discovered as we were ramping up mileage for our longer runs several years ago was the utility of having pre-planned “aid stations” that sometimes were nothing more than a stashed water bottle in a tree or bush.

Having this type of “support” is a little easier on road runs, at least outside of an urban environment, but you can do it with trail running as well.

In the video above we talk about how we dealt with going on longer runs while staying safe and making sure we stayed hydrated.

Of course, there are many ways to go about this – if you’ve got a favorite method let us know about it!
