45 Days :)
I can't believe that in 45 Days I will be running my 3rd Marathon. Yikes!! Training has been going really well this cycle. I am pumped about my 3:12:43 at Around the Bay 30km...It was a challenging course...Although Mississauga Marahton is a net downhill there are hills...a big one at the 10km and quite a few rolling ones...I am proud because last week I did not taper...it was my Highest Mileage week to date with 60km (37miles) and I was able to be strong on the ATB course... I hope I can re-create that on May 15, 2011. I have been doing my hill training every week and will continue to with 9-hill repeats tonight... Next week is my last hill week then I will starting doing some longer tempo runs and Yasso 800's :) I plan on following my Running Scheduled for the next 7 weeks...Currently I am running 4 days per week with an attempt at two cross training sessions. I am going to try and manage another 6km steady run on Saturdays...My legs have been feeling good...if they start to stress then I will pull back and continue with my stretching, rolling and icing plan with only 4 days run (one long slow distance, tempo run (6km), hills training (8-15km) and a steady run (8-10km)...I am hoping that by Chicago I can increase that mileage big time! How often do you run in a week to prepare for a full marathon???
