Very true. I guess I didn't look at it that way, given the fact that some plans also only call for one long run of the maximal distance. One could presumably do just what you suggested, one 20 miler on one 80 mile week, and fall within the guidelines while only averaging maybe 60 miles per week and 15 mile long runs.

Indeed, it's no secret what either of us thinks of the heavy focus on the long run contrasted with the complete disregard for what happens on the rest of the week.
