Ahhhhh am I crazy???
Beatrix, and interesting challenge, but I wonder if the lack of a big event like a race will make it hard to keep motivation?
Sounds like an extremely bad idea to me for the following reasons:
- At the moment your body isn't strong enough to run 60k a week- You will get very bored, if you don't get injured first- Life will get in the wayAnd most of all:- If you really want to spend the next four years productively, say by getting as fit as you can running, whilst enjoying it along the way and having a life, you will find that fitness comes along progressively and the fitter you get the more training load you will be able to cope with. So why restrict yourself to 10k a day? What if you decide to train for a marathon and get your weekly long run up to 30k or 35k? I can't imagine any of the Olympians you've been inspired by had such a restrictive plan.
What he said really, especially the bored/injured part, do you have a sufficiently large number of route options so you don't repeat the same ones day after day after day.
Good luck whatever you end up doing though
