A few weeks ago my family was out of town. I took the opportunity to run... a lot... and managed to hit my first 50+ mile week. It helped that I could take naps when needed and was able to go to bed early.

Here is a screenshot of my dailymile weekly mileage with the 50+ mile peak:

Following this high mileage week I had some "hint" pains in a lot of places, such as along the shin bone, in my foot, and around the knees. This was in addition to sore muscles. I listed to my body, backed off, and did not develop any injuries. Now I'm into high intensity training (hills and intervals on the track) and back into the 20-40 mile per week range.

I think that rest and recovery is likely a limiting factor for me so with a full-time job and busy family life you won't be seeing any more of these crazy mileage weeks for a while. However, I'm feeling very fit now and I am excited about the upcoming fall racing season.
