Great Training Idea #1 again. The 200 Mile Week

In order to get used to running day after day, Steve decided to attempt a 200 mile week, starting on September 2nd. This he duly managed, by doing one big run each morning of around 15-22 miles with a shorter one in the evening and two or three miles with his faithful dog, Jeffrey at lunchtime.

He noted the following:

Running speed dropped steadily down to 7mph after three days, but didn't go any lower.
Appetite doesn't increase massively
Thighs ache a bit and slight feeling in one hip, but nothing major. (All runs were on road)
