Run until the trail runs out.
The pain that hurts the worse is the imagined pain. One of the most difficult arts of racing is learning to ignore the imagined pain and just live with the present pain (which is always bearable.) - Jeff

"When I got too tired to run anymore I just pretended I wasnt tired and kept running anyway" - dd, age 7
So I got my mileage up to about 185 per month in march and april during a base phase and started speedwork in may. When that started I dropped my mileage to 108 (running by feel to avoid injury). Gradually, with speedwork of the same intensity and duration (increasing intensity a bit, actually) I went by feel back up to 175 miles in june and now in july I hit 256.9 miles and also started doing a regular weekly long run (working that up to a 20 miler by october, is the current target). I didn't think I'd be running so much during my heavy intensity speedwork season, but I run as much as my legs feel good, so I'm happy!
Oh... quick edit. I'm happy to report that I've been running again for almost a full year now! Just 2 more weeks and it'll be 1 year!
nice consistency and sweet job!
