Subject: RE: Kellogism vs Coeism
Body: kellog stated a few years back in one of his articles, that runners should be able to hit 150 miles/ week. He even stated that that former wonderkid bruce hyde hit 156 if my memory serves me correctly.

Where does it say that "Kellogism" means running 150 miles a week and running easy days at 7:30 pace? Does he actually say that? If so I was unaware. I was a Cornell runner and Rojo's training was based off of John's philosophy and he was always very clear that he never advocated "running slow". He said to run "easy". There is a difference and it is relevant to individual runners. The point was to run a pace on your easy days that you can recover at and feel good for the next day. For some people that meant 7:30 pace yes, but I'd say most were more at 7 min pace and some in the 6:30-7 minute range. Hypothetically you could run 6 minute pace for easy days if you really recovered at that pace and it felt super easy, but that's not the case for most people.
Also I think I could name maybe 4 or 5 CU runners who ever broke even 140 for mileage and they by no means did that consistently at all; it was a one or two time thing for most of them. The mileage range for guys on the team is actually huge because your progression is based on how much you did in hs, but in general it was definitely pushed that you should eventually get up to 100 miles/week and some guys topped that with maybe 110-120. But that's still a far cry from 150.
