Should Runners Count Their Weekly Mileage?

4th November 2020

As runners, most of us just LOVE a stat. How far? How long? Average pace. Fastest pace. With GPS running watches, Strava and all kinds of ways to measure these numbers and keep a record, it’s really easy to fall into a habit of getting hung up over our mileage. So should we count our weekly mileage? Does it mean anything?

Anna, Kate and Rick are here to look at both sides of the debate and answer that question.
