Week 2 of Training for Philadelphia

After tomorrow’s run I will have completed my second of 16 weeks of training for the Philadelphia Marathon.

My training plan called for 57 km, 36 miles, this week. So far despite the fact that I took an extra day off yesterday because I was too busy I have managed to complete 43 km. With a run of at least 10 km to go tomorrow I will come close to hitting the mileage called for in my plan.

While last week when exactly to plan this week has not as I ended up not running Tuesday due to rain and the fact that I was exhausted and yesterday I ended up being too busy to get out.

I did, however, manage to get in two runs Wednesday to make up for the missed run on Tuesday and tonight I ended up doing a tempo run on my way home from work. As a result, it has still been a fairly productive week in terms of training for Philadelphia.

When I start week 3 on Sunday I will have 1077, or 669 miles, of training remaining before I run Philadelphia. I can only hope the remaining 14 weeks of training will go as well as the first two have gone.

How did your training go this week? Did you hit your goals?
