    I am posting because I’m trying to figure out what distance I should be running. I’ve been running almost one year straight now 30-40 miles a week, and it occurs to me I have no idea what event I’m really more suited to. Currently my focus is the 5k so I race over and under distance, but to be honest I dont have a basis for knowing whether I’m better suited to something shorter or longer.

    My original thought process is more lifetime miles makes for longer distances. I ran some in HS but I’m not sure even then that there was a strong basis for the distance I ran then.

    I was hoping someone here could suggest a time trial or some logical way for me to plan over the next couple of years what distances I should hone in on.

    Any advice you have is greatly appreciated,
