From what I've read, 1.5-2x your daily mileage is considered your long run. If you are doing 3, I'd start my longs at 4.5-5 miles. I've not been going long for quite a while...just ramping up again after being semi sidelined due to a knee issue. But when my normal daily mileage was 3.5-4 I was going 8 for my Saturday long runs. Just one data point and one opinion. Good luck with the training.

I will begin training for a half marathon in a few weeks using Galloway method. My magic mile was 13:30. It shows my training pace at 19:33 and I understand that is for the long runs. But it also gives a pace time of 16:12. Is that for the short runs? Also I am currently running 3 miles at a time. What constitutes a long run?
