Training Mileage in April

With a 13.4 km run last night I ended the month of March with a total of 295 km. March ended up being a good month for my training. I would have passed 300 km had I not had to skip a couple of runs. In April I will be looking to pass that mileage total.

Today I started off April with a 9.5 km run including 8 km at marathon pace. With only two months left before the Ottawa Marathon, April is sure to be my busiest month in terms of mileage. If all goes according to plan this month I will be completing 360-400 km this month.

Included in the mileage for this month are my first runs over 30 km, three of them to be exact.

Also included in my mileage totals for April are my next two races. The Minto Run for Reach half-marathon on the 10th of April and the Ottawa Physio Race 10 km on the 17th. Of course I will be looking to beat my current personal bests at both of these distances but the primary goal, especially with the half-marathon, will be to get my legs used to holding a more intense pace consistently over a longer distance.

What are your training plans for April?
