I know the allure of the “magical 100” is out there. I think about it myself too. However, keep in mind that’s it’s just a number.
Rita, if I gave you the choice of 1) averaging 50 mpw for the year or 2) hitting a month of 100 mpw, which would you take?
Everytime I read about running 100 mpw, I just remind myself that I’m already running more than in the past, I’m consistent, I feel good and I’m racing well. I’ll continue with this approach and bump my mileage during my next build-up. Maybe I’ll eventually get to 100, maybe not. I know I’m not going to get there just to say “I did it.”
