  • hulleybeck and overracing?

    today ed hulleybeck ran a 105.12 half marathon, one week after his 212.37 marathon, i heard he ran a 10k in new orleans 2 days before he was the first american in boston, he is 42 or 43 years old, they say it takes longer to recover from racing at that age. most of the running periodicals always talk about overtraining and overracing. bill rodgers used to race weekly while doing 140-170 miles a week. i wonder if overtraining and overracing is a myth. remember a 20 mile day is only 2 hours of easy to moderate running for top runners, other athletes train more timewise. i wonder if our runners wouldnt be better if they trained harder when henry rono was in his prime he said i dont run to the point of pain and exhaustion, i run to break the point of pain and exhaustion.
