Adding Distance (Read 1257 times)

I've got a fever...

    There's the old 10% rule (only increase your weekly mileage by a max of 10% per week), which is pretty conservative unless you're running high mileage. But I prefer the recommendations by Jack Daniels, PhD (not to be confused with Jack Daniel's 80 Proof) found on Pfitzinger's website: •Increase your mileage by no more than one mile for each training session you run per week. For example, if you run 6 times per week, you would increase your mileage by up to 6 miles per week. •Don't increase your mileage week after week. That approach is very likely to lead to injury. Instead, increase your mileage one week, then stay at that level for 2 to 3 weeks before increasing again.

    On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office.  But you will wish that you'd spent more time running.  Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.

    The Meek One

      Thanks again. I have increased my runs without killing myself and every run feels great. Cool
