/ 100k a week
to go from 60 -120k is a big jump you may get away with it, but its a risk, and once injured your not very fit!
Quality is more important, I rarely did more than twenty mile a week but raced every week if not twice, and did far better than guys doing double that distance
What are you training for?
i dont feel fatigued as yet
You might do next week though.
Personally i'd increase the run distance, to build up the endurance, a bit. Say 20% at a time with a couple of weeks between each increase.
Are you training for an event?
Depending where you're starting from a commonly applied rule is
Increase overall distance by no more than 5-10% each week
Increase "long run" distanec by no more than 5-10% each week
Alternate hard/ easy work outs
Either alternate hard easy weeks, or Increase distance for 3 weeks, then in the fourth week have a "consolidation" or easy week where you step back a bit in intensity and distance - a bit like this:
Don't do a big increase in speed sessions (high intensity work) at the same time as increasing overall milage.
The massive motivation you get seeing rapid improvements when you up your training - can really entice you to ramp up quickly - but (depending on your running base) it can be easy to pick up niggles/injuries (knee problems, etc)
I've stepped up over the years but step, plateau, add intensity, step, plateau add intensity..
I like to step up 10-15% then hold and give my body time to hurt, 2-3 weeks at least, then add reps/races etc... then get used to that then step..
I think most people can handle 50-60 miles a week, above that things get harder
was posting (in my mind) in km - but more generic numbers to indicate the principal i was trying to get across.
I've never run 50 miles a week!
