    I have a question about the Level 2 Marathon Plan in the 80/20 book.

    Week 11 includes a 20-mile run (Long Run 15). But I am not seeing a second 20-miler in the plan. Am I reading that correctly?

    Or, is the Marathon Simulator Run in Week 15 intended to be a 20-mile run as well? If not, what distance should that run be?

    Thank you.

    Hi PattyG,

    The Marathon Simulator Run in Week 15 of the Level 2 marathon plan will be your last long run before race day.
    Here is the recommended approach to that workout (and taken from our Level 2 TrainingPeaks structured plan)

    1 km (0.6 mile) Zone 1
    2 km (1.2 miles) in Zone 2
    26 km (16.1 miles) @ MP
    2 km (1.2 miles) in Zone 1

    To determine your marathon pace you can review our 80/20 marathon race pace guide:

    Cheers

    Thank you for that information — and for the helpful article as well.

    Much appreciated!
