I think I looked back once at my training for my first marathon and saw that I average just 20-30 miles per week. I finished the marathon but I certainly wasn’t prepared for it. I remember looking over a training plan for a later race and being flabbergasted at the prospect of running not one but two weeks that crested over 50 miles! Surely I couldn’t run that many miles in such a short time span? And then when I trained for my last goal race I averaged 55 miles per week with many in the 60s and one cresting over 70.
Right now I’m not following a training plan and I’m hitting 60-70 miles with ease. When did this happen? When did 50 miles per week go from unfathomable to an easy week?
I’m not complaining and I’m not bragging. In fact I have absolutely no point here at all. Carry on.
