Building the Perfect Week

I found the following article that gives tips on how you can set up your perfect week of training in order to meet your goals http://bit.ly/9PsqMH

Currently my training plan involves me running 6 days a week. I take Sunday for long, slow runs while Monday is my day of rest. The rest of the week I try to schedule easy or recovery runs after more intense workouts like speed intervals, hill training, tempo runs or fartleks.

In terms of distance per week, at the peak of this training program I topped out at approximately 110-115 km during my three busiest weeks of training. Now that my goal marathon is less than to weeks away I am back down to about 60-65 km this week and then next week I will be doing substantially less mileage as I continue to taper before the marathon on October 3rd.
