Mileage is interesting
My first one I averaged about 50 miles a week. Popped my knee at 30 km and staggered home just I side 11 hours.
My silver in 2008 I was doing 100 mile weeks and was smooth all day.
In 2009 I never made the start after back and the leg damage
2 years rebuilding and broke my leg prepping for 2012.
Goals and training age matter. I know these days I only run 30 miles most weeks but would not do Comrades.
