Do you think I have enough time to train for a November 15th 60k?

Currently, I run approximately 50 miles per week and have been increasing each week.

As Beasty's post suggests - the key is your long run as to whether you'll manage it okay...

I'd say it's undoubtedly too late to properly train and do yourself justice in it, I mean I'd say it takes a year to properly train for a marathon - but it's certainyl not too late for you to be able to run it and cross the finish line.

Sounds to me like a serious increase in mileage, 60K is a very long distance. Sorry to burst your bubble but its a hell of a long way. You must consider that your body will take 2 weeks if not a little longer to benefit from any long training runs. If that race is in a months time this only gives you 2 weeks training.
Good luck if you are going attempt it, but listen to your body....

Thank you all for your advise. I'll take it and not run the 60k this time around. I'll keep my focus on the January marathon.

Got good motivation today when I was running in Central Park: Paula Radcliff blew by me. She's so fast that by the time I crested the hill near the Reservoir she was out of sight...

Thanks again all.

Happy Trails
