Thanks for the reply. Very interesting. I am in a wierd position because I can comfortably run up to two hours without having any problem whatsoever. I've done several two hour runs and many in the 1:40-1:45 range. They are no problem. Running long isn't a problem.
However, I've always been a relatively moderate-WEEKLY mileage guy. I've gone up to 70ish for about a month before in the past year. "Listen to your body," is the phrase everyone likes to throw out. I was doing 70's in the midst of workouts to be honest. The goal is to be great years from now, not now. However, with cross steadily approaching, I haven't gone any higher this summer than what I've done in the past. Would it be an okay idea to flirt with stints of higher mileage(around the 15-a-day area) but never make a serious commitment to 100 (for now)? Also, if only doing moderate mileage, are the three long day's per week still advocated?
Thanks for all your help.
