This would provide a stronger stimulus to improve your VO. 2max. The optimal duration for VO2max intervals for marathoners is approximately 2 to 6 minutes. Intervals in this range are long enough . so you accumulate a substantial amount of time at 95 to 100 percent of VO2max during each interval but short enough so you can maintain the optimal-intensity range throughout the workout. Intervals for marathoners should generally be between 800 and 1,600 meters. The training schedules in this book include some workouts of 600-meter repeats during weeks when your top priority lies elsewhere, such as when the week also calls for a tune-up race.

If you typically race 10K in 32:00 but run 33:10 in a tune-up race, you could interpret the result as meaning you’re not in shape, and you might start to train harder or become discouraged. It’s important to put the result in the context of the situation. The other way to approach a tune-up race of 8K to 12K is to do a minitaper and give yourself a couple of recovery days. This is the appropriate approach if you’re using the race to assess your fitness level or as a confidence booster leading up to the marathon.

Where to strike the balance? The night before your marathon, reduced tension is a good thing, but as discussed earlier, any amount of dehydration is detrimental to running performance. With this in mind, it’s best to limit yourself to one or, at the most, two beers or one glass of wine the night before the marathon. Take in enough extra fluid to make up for the dehydrating effect of the alcohol. Drink an extra ounce (30 ml) of water for each ounce of beer and an extra 3 ounces (90 ml) of water for each ounce of wine that you drink.
