I ran my first 3 or 4 BQs and sub-3 hour races off of 40-45 miles per week at peak.

"When I got too tired to run anymore I just pretended I wasnt tired and kept running anyway" - dd, age 7
I usually find that life causes cutback weeks whether I plan for them or not, so I just try to plan my cutback weeks when I know I will need to anyway. If that makes sense. Like for vacation etc. Sometimes I go 3 weeks in a cycle, sometimes 4, I dont worry too much. My overall plan is to be ahead of schedule so I dont stress about having to change something to accomodate life.

Chumbawamba: I get knocked down But I get up again You're never going to keep me down
DAMN - it wasnt supposed to be THIS much of a cutback, I was still supposed to do a 20 this weekend but spent the whole day on the couch clutching a bucket.
