Sometimes less IS more. @coachjenny explains the benefits of running FEWER miles:

Coach JENNY!!!!! You helped me out this past July. I was running myself into the ground, exhausted, and I was worried about backing off without compromising my goals. (Read her original question in my column about overtraining here. ) My dream was to get near my mother's marathon personal record — 3:46 at the 1985 NYC Marathon when she was 44 years old. I knew if I got near that time, I would qualify (for Boston). I also wanted to honor my marathoning parents, both of whom are gone now. My last marathon was in 1990, and I crashed and burned at 4:20. I’m now 47 years old. So I followed most of your advice and backed off, with my average weekly mileage around 38-45. On race day, I took your Timeless Challenge and raced GPS-less, running by feel. Although I had to walk three times after mile 20, I finished in 3:50:04!!! It looks I'm heading for Boston in 2015!! Thank you SO M...
