Week 11 of my 16 week training for the Philadelphia Marathon is nearly complete. This week’s plan called for 93 km, 58 miles. I have not yet been for today’s run and still have two runs left for the week. My current mileage sits at 62 km for the week. As a result, my plan is a 14 km run tonight and a 14 km run tomorrow which will bring me to 90 km.
This week was another good week of training. The week began with my second 20 miler, 32 km, on Sunday. Wednesday involved a ladder workout for speed work while tonight’s planned run is a 14 km with 12 km at tempo pace.
Week 12 will kick off with another 20 mile run on Sunday. It will be the third of my planned four 20 mile training runs before Philadelphia.
With five weeks of training left I now have approximately 407 km, 252 miles, to go before I hit the streets of Philadelphia in November.
