Cakesy ..... I peaked in the late 60s ..... so my average for the whole campaign was 52 miles which includes tapering .... I ran on Sunday a 2.58. I do a fair amount of easy paced running.
When I talk about 70-80 miles per week, the big dogs running 2.20s/2.30s do high mileage to achieve those times. Someone will be along in a bit who does that kind of miles and runs those times to explain. I'm not sure my body could take 80 miles in a week but I will try to build up to that to get myself under 2.50.
