These diets seem to promise dieters that they can eat all they want and still lose weight. However, there is one condition; the dieter must give up all carbohydrate-containing foods, which includes bread, pasta, fruit, sweet corn, and potatoes. Because more than half of Americans are overweight or obese, we all seem to be looking for a weight loss program that works.

I believe that building mileage for a marathon is the biggest robber of performance. Training for weeks and weeks plus adding mileage leaves a person worn out. Weeks and weeks of long runs add to this exhaustion.
I consider a long run to be over 15 miles in length. When the length starts approaching 20 miles even more stress is added to your training.
