    Hello Guys,
    In plans from book, the volume on day 7 in Base, Build up and even part of Specific period is mentioned as 40% of weekly total. This is really huge number if the total volume is already over 100km. Do I understand this correctly? After exceeding the threshold of 100 km of weekly mileage, the Sunday run will be 40 km long and continue to increase? Isn’t there a time threshold where such training is no longer profitable?

    I’m pretty sure it’s a maximum of 40% volume for the long run. There’s a fair amount of flexibility around it as mileage is increased. It’s more to ensure mileage is spread out across the week to encourage consistency.
