Week 14 of my 16 week training schedule for the Philadelphia Marathon is nearly complete. With one run remaining this week my mileage for the week currently sits at 53.5 km. Given that I am planning to do 13-14 km tomorrow, I’ll end up finishing the week with a total of approximately 67 -68 km.
The week did not get started quite as planned on Sunday. I had my final 32 km, 20 mile, run scheduled. However, I woke up not feeling well and after completing 12.5 km leaving me approximately 20 km short of what my weekly total would have otherwise been.
The rest of the week went well. On Wednesday I completed my final speed work session before the marathon with 12 x 400 m repeats. Tonight I managed to get in an 11 km tempo run. As mentioned already, I plan to end the week with an easy 13-14 km easy run tomorrow.
Week 15 kicks off with a 25 km, 16 mile, run Sunday morning. With just over two weeks left before the Philadelphia Marathon, I now have approximately 133 km, 83 miles, of training remaining before race day.
How did your training go this week?
