Sunday long run

25k in 2h 40min (avg pace 6:25/km) with avg HR 139. This is about the longest training run I will do in preparation for a marathon - I think. Some training programs advocate increasing the long-run distance up to 30k and above, but many others claim the risk of injury or overtraining increases dramatically when doing 3+ hour training runs and thus they are not worth the risk.
