Thread: Miles / elevation covered

    Miles / elevation covered

    Quick question =
    Im attempting a 2nd return to running after 3 attempts of corrective surgery on my back (specifically L5 S1.)
    Ive walked my 3 dogs on the same route for years in rural northumberland. Its a 4 mile loop with 700 foot of elevation. Im thinking of following a training plan to get me up to marathon distance for February (ive ran a few marathons already & my last race was a 35 mile ultra at the end of March 2015 im also a member of a running club)
    Can i use my miles & elevation on my dog walk as "logged miles" for my training plan?
    I hope this makes sense
    thanks in advance

    Why not gently jog it and use the miles as recovery runs?

    I guess it depends on "your plan"
