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.

No SD. You and Mr K were expected.

Would you be surprised to know that I still run a little and ran 10.02 for 3kms yesterday.

Still miss BigC but don't miss the training. Did 62 miles in a week last month for the first time since 2011 and laughed at how easy it was. Went back to 30 the next week reminding myself I am a cyclist.
