|Subject: ||RE: Van Aaken marathon training|
Remember the Law of Diminishing Returns. Your first miles provide the greatest increase in fitness. Higher miles make you more fit but the increments of improvement level off. Consistency over a long period of time will result in better fitness. Van Aaken himself ran 3:17 in his forties or fifties, I forget which, and his son told me that he and his dad ran 10 km every night after work.
