This week was considered my second build. I am increasing my weekly mileage in preparation for marathon training. It's just 3 weeks until the Seawheeze half-marathon in Vancouver, and 13 weeks until the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon -time to get serious.
My week went like this:
Monday: OFF. NTC abs and arms workout.
Tuesday: Double run day: AM 60' easy, PM 30' easy. I did NTC ab burner 2.0 when I got home.
Wednesday: Was meant to be a track workout, and then the track was closed, so we ran to a high school where we thought there might be another one. No such luck. Instead we did 60' easy a social/catch-up run. We were happy with that. I also did the NTC core strength workout.
Thursday: 80' easy, ran home from work the long way, saw the ocean and then gave the legs a couple large hills for some strength.
Friday: 40' easy, I ran to work. I like to get short runs done so I can enjoy the afternoon once work is over.
Saturday: Group workout: 20' easy, 2 sets of: 1.73km, 2.18km @HMP, 20' easy. The paces ended until being 10km pace, it was a good hard workout – I know this because I felt like I was going to throw up. I also did the NTC ab burner and abs and arms workouts.
Sunday: 80' easy, back on the old marathon training route with Lisa. Feels good to be back and the runs are feeling good so far! I did the NTC core strength workout.
Total Weekly Mileage: 81km
Bring on the mileage!
