good job. I've been hitting 18 mi this summer. Have to be careful because last 20 mi week this past spring caused IT Band and hamstring injuries... An old fart like me needs to increase it more gradually. Maintain that base and good luck to ya!
Same thing happened to me last spring! Got cocky after running first 10k a full minute faster than i trained for. Had to cut back for almost 3 months, especially after shin splints added to the IT Band issue! Used Galloway's run/walk approach to heal up and re-build base. Am about to get to 20 mi week again in order to run a half on 11/8. Ran first 15k yesterday w/o problems.
