Hi guys. I''m wondering how many miles you typically run per week in the off season? It has been almost 5 years since my last marathon and I''m currently running about 30 - 40 miles per week depending on the amount of time I actually have to run. Sometimes I wonder if this is too much considering I''m not training for anything. Other marathoners that I know run at least one a year so they are hard to ask because they have more goals than I do. After my last one I took a two year break from running and spent that time biking. The last one was really hard on my knees; former gymnast and college cheerleading + running = bad knees. Over the past two years or so I''ve built back up to running and really perfer that however I''m really curious to what others do.
