    I would vote for the longer run this weekend. Doing two runs in a day to prep for a relay like this is nice, but not totally necessary.

      I was leaning towards this weekend too…thanks for the advice!

  2. Amber from Girl with the Red Hair

    I’ve never trained for a relay event like that but I HAVE done double runs before (never a TRIPLE) and really enjoyed it! I like splitting up my mileage throughout the day like that.

    Don’t run TOO much though or you’ll risk injury šŸ™‚ Good luck!

      Injury this close to the race is my big fear…

    I would wait and do the long run on the weekend!

    I would just run your regular weekend training run. I think it’s too close to race day for anyone to run doubles.

  5. Morgan @ healthy happy place

    hmmm if it were me, I’d like to practice doing what I’d be doing for the actual race. I vote for the double run!!

      I will be running three times in 36 hours for Hood to Coast.

    I get dizzy spells too. No one has figured it out, but I wish I could tell you!

  7. Lori (Finding Radiance)

    Do you need that long run? I know there is that impulse to go-go-go right near a big event, but the event itself is the most important thing and one run really and truly is not going to make or break your performance on that day at this stage of the game. Unless you hurt yourself.

      Yea…I’m torn. I wanted to increase my mileage slowly this year–which I’ve done fairly slowly. I think one long run this weekend will be ok. Next week is my taper so I won’t over do it.

  8. Beth @ Beth's Journey to Thin

    I think the long run on the weekend is a better idea than running tonight!

    1. hundredtenpounds

      I agree. Especially after going out for Mexican food! šŸ™‚

  9. shelby @ eatdrinkrun

    I would skip the doubles, do an easy longer run this weekend, then taper as planned!

    68 degrees sounds heavenly!

      Thanks for the advice! So your team didn’t get picked this year…did it get picked for the Portland to Coast Race Walk?
