Adjusment-"Long Run"

  So, I have been thinking about my training program and where I am physically and mentally. I am in a real good place. However, with 29 days to go I feel that I need to adjust my long run plan. I have been running a long run every week for the past four weeks and the residual fatigue is there...so I am thinking this Monday I will run for three hours. I will still achieve a "long run". Since I logged 167.9 miles in September, that's crazy for me! I have the miles, now I need to simulate the race day for the next 16 days before the taper starts.
  So it's back to time on feet with striving for MP on the long run. I may still incorporate walk segments, like a 9min run 1 min walk ration. Excited to see how it works....if it does I will save this program and type it out on here for future use-
  Input is appreciated!~Hope all is well with you!
