Can I Split My Long Runs?
Although there are some similar physical benefits gained when splitting a long run, the overall benefits are not as great as when you do one continuous long run. One goal of long slow distance is to train your muscles to spend hours running and being on your feet, just as you'll be doing on race day. You need to learn to run through fatigue and practice proper pacing, as well as hydrating and fueling on the run. And, of course, it's definitely easier mentally to run 10 miles in the morning and 8 miles at night, rather than 18 miles all at once — which is why you don't want to do it every week. Ideally, you want to run your long run continuously, since that's what you'll be doing in your marathon. But, if it's absolutely necessary, splitting your run once in a while is a great way to squeeze a long run into a busy week. And it definitely beats the alternative of skipping your long run altogether.
