Ten, I can see it might appear that way. I will book in an autumn marathon to keep me ticking over and see how my motivation is around Christmas time to see if another bout of P&D is on the cards.
However I think higher mileage is only better if you are ready for it and the body can recover fast enough.
You guys are doing something wrong as my family have no interest in marathons and never watch me run but love me doing marathons as they get a nice weekend away. I normally get a 5 star hotel and make it into a holiday. Training is not a problem as I train in work time mainly.
Saying that my knee is so f@@ked not sure I want to do another one. The doc has put me on anti biotics tablets and antibioti cream as it's still bleeding and outing pus . He Didn't really seem to have a clue
Madbee - excellent session . Remember that in future to help give you confidence .
Nows nowt , I don't want to be a downer but I went from 28 mpw and a 3:13 comfortable marathon to the 55 now and ran almost a PW..
I think they say around 3:15 times 10mpw extra should count for 5 mins in experienced runners.
I won't up my mileage, might even drop back down.
