Day 002 - The 4:40 time goal marathon (OK, get your shoes on! )

40-50 minute run        Training via ActiveMail

TODAY, RUN FOR 45-50 MINUTES: This is one of 2 to 4 sessions you'll do each week to maintain and fine-tune the endurance you develop on your weekly long runs. Your goal in this training program is to run a 4:40 marathon, that is, to do the marathon in 4 hours and 40 minutes. This time goal will guide the speed of your training runs and make sure you don't go too fast. For a 4:40 marathon goal, you'll run each mile in 10 minutes, 41.2 seconds. These per-mile times are called your "mile splits." (When the notorious Rosie Ruiz "won" the 1980 Boston Marathon, TV commentator Kathrine Switzer asked Ruiz what her splits were. Ruiz replied, "What are splits?" That confirmed for Switzer that Ruiz was an imposter!)
