Chris, for me the question is not “Am i running too much”, it’s more “do I feel okay during and after the run”. I can run 100 mile weeks, in fact I’ve ran over 200 miles in a week 9 years post op. It’s also about pace and intensity. For me a 5K is so much harder than 100 miles on my hip, so distance and time are not the real gauges. Sure I can still run a 5K sub 20 minutes but if I do it throws my training off for 3 weeks. I prefer to run ultras as they are easier on my body. It’s all about what works for you at this time, it may change over time. I used to be able to run 5K’s, but now I rarely do. Good luck.
