Joe Sheeran’s Approach to High Mileage1 min read
You Think You Run High Mileage? Try Four Runs a Day
With two running careers separated by 21 years off because of injury, Joe Sheeran of Washington state has won five national masters age-group titles and hopes to add a sixth one at the U.S. club cross-country championships, December 12 in San Francisco.
Despite ongoing foot problems, Joe Sheeran continues to run four times a day logging over 85 miles per week. Joe is not just putting in “long slow distance”, either. A 5K PR of 16:05, half marathon of 1:15, and marathon of 2:46, all of which since he turned 50, shows he puts in his share of speed-work as well.
