Scott’s Favorite Workout: The Back-to-Back
Instead of one long run, do back-to-backs. “You’ll never be able to tackle a 40-miler,” says Jurek. Instead, take on a longish workout — 15 to 20 miles — and then follow the next day with the same or another long ride or paddle.
Doing two longish runs or workouts on consecutive days is a good call for all distance sports, says Jurek. For a half-marathoner, it would mean doing back-to-back 8-milers, or 15-milers for a marathon. The idea is to combat muscular fatigue, let you practice fueling, and give you confidence on the long haul.
