I hope you enjoy chillin out maxin and relaxin all cool. Here's a question for you, what is your mileage per week like when you consider yourself in peak condition?

From allie on Sat, Dec 01, 2012 at 07:49:55 from

natalie - i've been in what i consider peak condition at different amounts of weekly mileage, but i seem to respond best at the low end of higher mileage. i've had good races training at 50-55 MPW and i've had terrible races training 65-80 MPW. i've upped my volume this year and haven't seen any results yet, but that's not to say higher mileage doesn't work. it just hasn't for me. yet. i gauge peak condition more on the speed of my easy pace. when i'm fit, 7:00-7:15 pace feels easy (it doesn't happen often).

as for MPW, i think my magic range is between 55-65 MPW. a few 60+ weeks in a row and i start wearing down. my best marathons have come off of training cycles that averaged 55-60 MPW, with a peak of 70.

Allie I feel like you just described me! All of it...
