    You were seriously going to kill yourself (or an innocent or not-so-innocent bystander) if you kept running billions of miles in the early AM before work. 8 is so much more do-able than 15.

    However, I totally bow to your mileage prowess. You are seriously laying down some awesome mileage!

    It happens to us all. Sometimes it is hard to take a step back & figure out how to enjoy running again when we’ve become numb. Good job!

    your totally right to bring down the distances and to work on your speed more by doing so.All you are going to achieve by running 15 miles 3-5 times a week is a fairly effortless ability to run 15 miles at a comfortable speed.And you will burn out and become injured and maybe even seriously due to over training.
    You have said yourself that you wanted to bring your times under the sub 2 hour mark, and you will regularly achieve this if you do short and mid distance runs and at a greater speed than your long slow runs.
    I find half marathons easy as far as endurance is concerned because I regularly run that distance, but only weekly.My speed is greater 1:46 average for a half merely because I run faster 5k training runs and 10k runs with more speed effort than your typical long slow run.
    It’s your lungs and fitness you need to work on now not your endurance, and then you won’t lack motivation because your speed will grow and your pb’s regularly fall šŸ™‚
