What:   Long Slow Distance (LSD) run – build your running fitness level. 


Pace: Conversational. This means that you should be running at a pace where you can comfortably talk to the person next to you.  If you find yourself getting winded, slow down. The goal is to build a base by getting your body (cardiovascular and muscular systems) accustomed to the mileage


Why:  build aerobic base and increasing mileage of long run 


Distance: Depending on which level training calendar you are following, half marathoners will run from 4-8 miles and marathoners will run up to 12 miles.
