Week 1 of Training for the 2012 Ottawa Marathon

Week one of my 16 week training for the 2012 Ottawa Marathon is nearly complete. All that remains is a run tomorrow and my first week of training will be complete. This week has been a good start to my training.

This week’s plan called for a total of 20 miles, or 32 km. I have already passed that total. After tonight’s run my mileage for the week is now 37 km, or 22 miles. I plan to get in an 8-10 km run tomorrow morning which will push my mileage for week 1 over 40 km.

In terms of training this week, my runs were all in the 8-9 km range. I also managed to fit in a couple of higher intensity runs with a tempo run on Tuesday and a good speed workout at the track last night.

There is still a long way to go but it feels good to be training for a marathon again. Only 15 more of these updates to go now!

How did your training go this week?
