I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.
Mike - so if I'm understanding you right, it wouldn't be a problem for someone to have a normal 25 mile long run... if they were running around 75 miles/wk, staying injury free, and hadn't killed their passion. In other words, things need to be proportionate and most marathon training programs skew the milage too heavily towards the long run to be sustainable?
