Prior to 2003, the most miles I had run in one calendar year was probably 1500, or 29 miles a week. More likely it was 30-35 a week, and periods of no running. I made it to 1900 in ’03, and was far more consistent. I should make 2400 miles this year. 2004 was filled with injury, so the miles dropped down.
I believe in higher mileage, I really do. I’m just taking a slow and steady approach to building up. On the other hand, my current mileage is probably just about perfect for optimal 10K training 😆
