>General Running>NYT: Modern Marathoners Have Fewer Miles on Them
Barefoot and happy
Eek, I have been averaging 25-30/week in the past few months and I wouldn't even consider a marathon at this point...I feel that I would be woefully unprepared and risk injury. It boggles the mind that there are folks who even consider paying the race fee and attempting it with so relatively few miles/week under their belts. It sounds painful!
Needs more cowbell!
That said, you're probably wise to wait longer. I've been running pretty much continuously for about twelve years, which I think reduces my chances of injury.
• 6 duathlons (1 Olympic distance)
