20-25 a week for a 5k? that's adorable. I run MAYBE 10 total 3x a week and I've done several 5ks and now a 10k this year.

Maybe if you're full out training for a PR but just to participate? Way too much.

As for me, last night 3.5m on the TM during a crazy storm. I just kept hoping the power didn't go out mid-run.

Whoever wrote that is a nitwit and is going to hurt people. My Dopey max week was 48 miles. I do know some ultra runners that run 100 per week.

Maybe we're not getting the context. Is this for Olympic qualifying? :hilarious:

I already had little trust in runners world, but this is insane

Edit: There's a dutch book claiming the complete opposite

All you need for a marathon is to be able to run 10K within 60 minutes, and than you can prepare yourself with short trainings, but more often (4 times a week) and is based on working with heart rates, not making miles
The longest training in prep for the marathon is 14 KM / 8.5 M.
The heaviest week of that 2x14km, 1x 8 km, 1x 6km, making a total of 38 KM/ 23,5M.

For a full marathon. Not a half!

This is focussed on the 'quicker' runners, not walkers or people who are too heavy

The longest run in Galloway's training schedule for the challenges is 14 miles. Once. That's why when I saw this I thought, "no way"....
