|Subject: ||RE: Should high school guys be running 80MPW???|
If you can handle it without getting injured, I don't see why not. Up until SR year I had run 30-40mpw at my highest mileage in season and didn't even train in the off-season. Before SR year XC started, I decided I wanted to get recruited and so had to run faster. Summer before SR year I built up to and ran 70-80mpw subsequently dropping my 5k pr from 17:35 to 16:10. Throughout the winter, before outdoor track started, I put in 2 months of solid 80mpw and ended up running 9:20 in the 3200 (previous best was 10:00). So yes, 80mpw does work
